Belle finesse!

@Olivier: Thank you very much, Olivier.

Don Levesque from Saint John, Canada

Beautiful macro! Love the details of the crystals around the vines. Well done!

@Don Levesque: These are not vines, Don, but Common hop. Vines are just very rare in Belgium :-) The flower cones of the Common hop (known as hops) are used in the production of beer - and isn't Belgium known for his famous beers ? :-) Thanks for your comment again. Greetz !

@Veronique: Is there a particular reason for prefering this one ? That's the interesting part for me ... :-)))

Candais from Lisieux, Canada

This entire series has been lovely

@Candais: I'm glad you like the black and white series so far, Candais. I'm enjoying experimenting with the conversions of some old images.

¨‘°ºO Dutçh Oº°‘¨ from Neverwhere, United States

This one is a bit brighter and I like that, yesterday's was more details. I think still far better than I can do, or want to do in the cold. I applaud your tenacity, even if they are older photos.

@¨‘°ºO Dutçh Oº°‘¨: It is always very difficult to compare two images. I'm just curious the way different people look at my images and why someone likes a particular image more. So thanks for your opinion, Kristen ! (And I have to admit that going out in the cold to make images isn't my favorite ... )

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

the wave makes it more interesting :-)

@Veronique: Thanks for the addition, Veronique. Greetz !
