Grass-of-Parnassus

By jelsmack
This is a beautiful wildflower, I took it last July near Loch Vaich in Rosshire.
I know the frame kills it - please help! Any tips on making this a lot better would be most welcome.

You are too hard on yourself. It's not easy to retain detail in a white flower but this is nicely exposed.

Hi Sandra, a lovely capture very well presented - doesn't need to be any better! Smile
How about trying a different angle next time? Surprise the flower!
Stay Well, Rania

Thanks for your comments. Know what you mean Rania, tho' this little beauty grows with its face looking straight up to the sky, each plant produces only one small flower on a long thin stem, and I wanted to catch it as it was. This doesn't seem to have uploaded as well as it printed, it was truly one of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. I'll try again this year and see if I can do better!

Sometimes this kind of formal approach works for me. It allows the subject to express its' beauty. Nice and sharp with good depth of field.

well done
