I love this image, the single flower, looks lonely, and it is very thought provoking, i like the blend between complete blue sky and the hay-like brown of the field with the bright red, single flower is marvelous.

Outstanding! I love these types of pictures!


12th May 2009 at 4:02 am

did you pick all the other flowers?

12th May 2009 at 4:38 am

I think the title should be “Flower of Spain.”

12th May 2009 at 5:14 am

nice concept……. great contrast of colours……. looks almost surreal, but very soothing…..


12th May 2009 at 6:52 am

Very sublime. Really super (saturated) colors. I would have composed for a level horizon or would have corrected it PP.


12th May 2009 at 7:25 am

Wonderful composition and shot, but the post-production is over done. The super saturated colors and over-sharpening turn a beautifully subtle moment into something veering on garish and artificial.


12th May 2009 at 7:33 am

Just beautiful………..


12th May 2009 at 7:42 am

Less is more. Love the concept.

Very good job. This is what photography is about. A great artistic result that would sell well in any art gallery.


12th May 2009 at 8:36 am

wow, i almost imagine this is not real. Very nice shoot!

12th May 2009 at 8:39 am

Very effective; I would never have thought of that treatment.


12th May 2009 at 9:01 am

I like this image a lot. My only criticism is the sloping horizon. Easily fixed in Photoshop and will improve the presentation no end.

12th May 2009 at 9:47 am

very interesting shot indeed. The contrasting colors and the blurred background

really good. Take care of the horizon though.


12th May 2009 at 9:50 am

I love it and the way it draws you straight into photo


12th May 2009 at 10:12 am

Beautiful – makes a nice change to see this type of photo.

Wonderful colors and combination of colors! The single flower is perfectly exposed.

Poetry, that’s what this is. thank you for sharing it with us. Personally- the horizon is just fine. I mean the earth is round, right? I like being reminded of that.

12th May 2009 at 2:44 pm

Nicely done. Usually a horizon of this sort bothers me, but not in this one. It is more of an art than a photograph, and I like the way it is.
Well done and congratulations!!

12th May 2009 at 2:45 pm

A striking & imaginative shot!Would make a wonderful painting.

Vaya foto más wapa tío… Enhorabuena!!

Un abrazo.

12th May 2009 at 5:34 pm

WOW WOW WOW. The Colors are amazing. Well done


12th May 2009 at 6:24 pm

I like the sloping horizon. If you “fix” it in Photoshop, then you have created a false reality. Nature and life in general is imperfect, yet it is that imperfection that really is actually perfect.


12th May 2009 at 7:58 pm

Very beautiful work.


12th May 2009 at 11:47 pm

I too like the horizon in the image. Not only does it remind us that we are not perfect, nor are our surroundings, but at the same token, with the way the flower is leaning to the right, it’d look exceptionally off if the horizon were straight. I like it as is. Very beautiful image!

I have rarely seen truly level horizons in the real world. The movement of the grass, the one brilliant flower, the colors, all make for a wonderful photo. Well done!


13th May 2009 at 5:41 am

Very artsy! Simply stunning & stunningly simple!

13th May 2009 at 8:31 am

I love the simplicity of the photo.. the flower looks alone (not lonely) in the crowd

13th May 2009 at 1:14 pm

A wonderful image. Well composed and thought out.


13th May 2009 at 3:23 pm

Wow is right!! A shot so simply but very very beautiful, wonderful colors and terrific shot! :)
