  1. Simply a beautiful photograph! My forest pansy is just starting to leaf out and, sadly, it didn’t bloom this year due to the late cold weather we had. The leaves are almost as pretty as the blooms though!

    • Sorry to hear that. They produce very pretty blooms.

  2. That is outstanding!

    • This is pretty close to what I saw with my eyes, but not quite the same. You should have seen it. 🙂

    • Thanks. Too bad there weren’t any blooms left on this tree. Forest pansies produce really nice blossoms.

  7. They do look somewhat like heats 🙂 Good to see another fan of E100VS/EBX — excellent stuff, and for some jobs I prefer it to Velvia 50.

    • I LOVE E100VS. Some think it overdoes the colors, but I find it’s pretty accurate. Plus it scans well. 🙂

    Thanks for the comment! I just spent a 30 min on your site, and I really enjoyed it! It’s refreshing to see film works, especially when I’ve been sucked and absorbed into digital photography. Your work must be very rewarding at the final product because of the inherent effort involved in the process.

    • Yes, it can be very rewarding, especially because the results are delayed. It can also be heartbreaking. 😦

  9. Can I echo the comment above. Love the richness and tones. I will be back! Keep it up.

    • Thanks. I was perusing your work. Really amazing stuff. Love the Barbados sets.

  10. Glorious!
    I don’t know whether I wish I were there to grab a few leaves and tuck them into my hair, break off a couple of branches and put them into a bouquet in the kitchen or just stare at them with you and leave them undisturbed.

    You have a great eye, I like to look at your pics 😀

    • You’re very kind. Thank you. 🙂

  11. You know, you do so much black and white and special effects that when a color photo comes along, it just explodes off the screen. Very nice!

    May 4, 2009 at 10:30 PM

    • Well, I certainly can appreciate a good old color photograph. Sometimes I try so hard to be different I forget that I’m actually a fan of simplicity.

  12. Great shot…love the color and composition!

    So rich and vibrantly colored…I can almost imagine the texture of the leaves on my fingertips. Beautiful work.

    Wow… nice 🙂 That’s a real show-stopper.

  15. Great colors, great detail!

    May 6, 2009 at 2:48 AM

  16. I always want to see your photos larger.
    LARGER! Damn it. ;D

    May 6, 2009 at 6:11 PM

    • lol. Well, since you asked so nicely, I’ll see what I can do. 🙂

      May 6, 2009 at 6:56 PM

  17. Stunning! like it’s just sets outside my window! 🙂
    if not to much, can you please send me the larger file i want it as my desktop background…

    thanks in advance! 😀

    • The largest file for this is only 1024 pixels wide; I guess you could center it on your desktop so it doesn’t stretch.

    Looks like a Valentine’s plant to me.

    • The same tree has changed quite a bit since I took this. The leaves don’t really look like hearts anymore. 😦
