don't take it personal just keep shooting

I tried to make it clear that I wasn't taking it personal. I said I wasn't jealous or hypercritical or whatever. I just was surprised that no one noticed what I think is an awesome flower. I didn't make the thing. Heck I just took a photo of it. It's something my landlord planted a long time ago. It's just that I think those flowers are something special. I know what level my photography is on. It's ok but certainly not great. It's not my work that I was surprised no one noticed. It's the flower. I looked through the whole thread and I only found one other passion flower in the whole thread. I just thought at least a couple of people might have noticed the flower. It surprised me more than anything I guess.

Jeff, a lot of gardens around here have passion vines. The flowers are magnificent, all right, but they don't seem exotic to people who live near them. I think they're also common in the American South.

Viewers also appreciate silently. There are many good photos that don't get comments.

Along the creek bank

I took this along the creek running through old Prattville, Alabama. I went for a slightly softer and desaturated look.

I think they're also common in the American South.

Yeah I know the flower as a whole is plentiful. It's the individual varieties that are sometimes rare. I don't think they're all a product of manipulation like roses are. They have a variety naturally and some of the different colors etc. are hard to find. I found this quote on Wikipedia about the subject:

"On the other hand, some species are endangered due to unsustainable logging and other forms of habitat destruction." So while some species are invasive and are actually displacing local plants it is also true that some species are being wiped out. There is a very wide variety of the form though and there is no danger of it disappearing as a whole.

This would be me. I saw that picture and wanted to comment on it, but I was on my phone at the time. I thought it was a crazy cool flower and I've never seen one before. Thank you for sharing and providing the information.

That's the comments I expect to maybe see at least one or so. Asking about the lack of comments isn't quite the same though. But you're certainly right. It is a crazy cool flower. I have never seen any other flowers that compare to be honest and not with just this particular passion flower. I'm talking about a whole bunch of different ones. They are just amazing IMO. Again my comments weren't about people ignoring my photo. I get ignored a lot at home. I've been married 36 years. I'm used to it. :) But the flowers are just spectacular IMO.

I think that many of us are not very knowledgeable about things botanic, but most of us are interested in things photographic, so most of the comments I see in this thread relate to the photographic quality more than the type of flower or how unusual it is.

Having said that, my first thought when I saw those flowers was that they were artificial "fantasies", until I took a second look and read your post. So thanks for sharing, and keep posting!

Am I the only one that thinks these flowers are stunning? Sure my camera isn't the very best but it isn't terrible either. I was just surprised to see that no one said anything at all about the images I posted before. Here's another two that look similar to the other examples but were taken with different settings. I'd ask if there is something terribly wrong with my photos but I know better on a board like this. Someone is always anxious to belittle people. I know what the images are like. I've worked as a pro videographer for a few years. I just think the flowers alone would elicit some sort of comments just for the way they look. Maybe I expect too much from this board. I've seen photos here that were called "stunning" that, well, just aren't. And this flower is whether my photo is or not. I know enough about photography to know it's as good as the images others have gone ga ga over. I don't mean to be jealous or hypercritical or anything of the sort. I just don't understand why people don't take notice of what is clearly a stunning flower. Passion flowers are recognized around the world as some of the most beautiful of any.

Those are pretty wild looking flowers!

You will find that during the summer months there are a lot of people on vacation and posting new photos. So there isn't much room for comments during these months. I guarantee during the fall and winter, you would be more attention to shots you post.

You also sometime have to deal with people just knowing each from many previous interactions online, and they feel obligated to comment for people they know, that also comment on their work.

This type of thing happens all the time with photos I post online. You can't judge the number of comments along with the quality of the work in many cases.
