Flower Photo Competition 1 2016 : Entry Number 94

Judges Comment

Beautiful selective focus, and being so close to these flowers make this one very special. We can almost smell the scent. Great composition as well.

Photographers Comment

My name is Henri Longchamp and I'm living in the northern part of the french south alps, near the italian border. This picture was taken with a Sony DSLR-A550 with a lens DT 16-80 mm f/3.5-4.5 ZA ; focal length was 75 mm, ISO 400 speed 1/2500 f/6.3 no tripod was used and location of this flower was nearby the summit of "pic de gleize" at about 2500 m high. Thus this is definitely not a macrophoto but a proxy one.
