You captured a nice glow and the flowers fill the frame well.
Ray: I liked the way they glowed in the early morning light, Martin. Thank you for your comment.
That is so, so beautiful, Ray. I love the bright green blades of grass.
Ray: Thanks, Mary. The bright green is a nice counter-point to the pink of the illuminated flowers.

Oh I just love this, Ray. It seems no matter how I try, I can not capture the beauty of grasses in the early morning sun.
Ray: [grin] My archives a strewn with failed attempts, Kathryn.
so beautiful
Ray: You are very kind, Pat. I am attracted by the beauty of scenes like this, but generally fail to capture then adequately.
There is such a delicacy in this composition Ray. Great colour tones and DOF
Ray: No need for me to enhance colours with this image, Richard. The early morning light performed the magic for me.

Very nice muted colours and DOF, is the red from the sun?
Ray: The flowers are of a pinkish hue, Nigel, but the early morning light enhanced them somewhat.

Excellent and very much so. Will put it in my gallery.
Ray: Oh, Good.
Actually, you so much good stuff of your own that I am surprised there is any wall space left in your gallery. [grin]

Oh my goodness Ray, these seed heads are beautiful. They positively glow with colour too.
Ray: Grass flower/seed heads are among the most beautiful of things in nature IMHO, Ellie.
