Crocuses by BenHeine Crocuses by BenHeine
Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter || www.benheine.com
____________________________________________________

Taken 2 days ago in Lille, France. These crocuses were really tiny, a few centimeters may be. I used a simple 70 mm lens but enhanced the whole image in CS4 afterwards. Several hours of work to get the results I wanted. The photo is not reframed, it actually is a montage of several of my photos. Please enlarge HERE (900 pixels wide, 72 dpi).

There is no specific meaning in this image. The main thing I wanted to express when I took the photos is the way fragile little things can appear big and strong sometimes, and beautiful of course. But your own interpretation is more important.

Do you have a special optical or you just zoom in (max) and focus?

Beautiful...I've never seen a flower shot quite like this. I like that you included the soil and decaying vegetation.

We're not yet close to seeing these beauties; the surface of the garden is still under much snow. Thanks for the foretaste of spring. The colors of the crocuses, and the hint of fog in the background, are beautiful.

I was actually asking because I was not sure what you were trying to show here, now I do... no need to create a fuss.

And by the way yes there does need to be a message all the time for :iconcaringart: submissions. as shown in our guidelines here: [link]

We try to make sure that submissions meet our strict requirements and that's why I was asking what your message was here, because while it may be obvious to some (maybe even most) it was not obvious to me, hence the question to begin with.

Thank you vorno for clarifying our submission guidelines, I've also been confused about some of BenHeine's submissions lately.

BenHeine, this is a very beautiful photo and with the message, I'm happy to have it showcased in our group. :)
