This was in a neighbor’s yard. It is hard to resist taking images of Bleeding hearts.

Very nice and well done Ravi. I like how all the flowers are treated equally, dof, sharpness, bg and same plane. And all the flowers are at about same stage of their bloom. And good idea to use two photos to get all the info.

Ravi, very beautiful with the perfect colour of BG for the flowers. Did you stack two photos, or Photomerge left and right halves of the stem? I’m guessing the second,; either way it’s a great job.

Ravi: Bleeding hearts are indeed irresistible and I like your capture here. Really good plane of focus management and I like the BG. First class effort. >=))>

Thanks David, Mike and Bill for your comments. Mike, these are two horizontal images stitched side by side to cover the entire length of the cluster.
