Siberian Gernaiium

One of the few surviving flowers as of last week… A tiny beauty this is very small - about 4 mm wide. grows at ground level, so difficult to spot. Unlike the usual geraniums, this blooms in mid to late summer and fall. Surprisingly thick and velvety leaves and very delicate. Touch it and it is gone! It has somehow made it into Wisconsin and Minnesota all the way from Siberia.

Nice take on this small dainty flower. The background is soft and enhances the sharpness of the geranium’s detail. Well done.

Stunning, with the tiny details so well captured. I love the slightly off-center composition and the soft BG with a hint of the stem to ground the flower. Gorgeous tonal detail in the whites!

I, too, am enjoying the flat, green background and sets off this flower well. I like your DOF choice also, electing to highlight only those parts on a single plane. One minor wish is that it filled the frame a tad more; otherwise very nicely captured.

Ravi: Really good DOF management on this little beauty. Good solid comp and a fine capture. >=))>
