Brownie Scout Iris by Darcy Johnson

July 2024 - Brownie Scout Iris

About the Image(s)

Iris of various varieties seem to be a family flower. This particular iris is called Brownie Scout. The original was given to my grandmother long before I was born due to her long time association as a Girl Scout Leader and administrator of scouting in the 1930's and 40's. Every home I have lived in (as far back as I recall anyway) has had a Brownie Scout iris in the garden. Didn't do much in post other than cropping and basic processing.

Very lovely iris with good blurred grey background. I was given a number of these by a friend, and I'm thrilled to know the name.   Posted: 07/04/2024 12:20:22

Hi Leslie - Thanks for visiting DD Group 14 and adding to the discussion. I don't see this variety of bearded iris in many gardens.

Well captured image Darcy, sharp where it needs to be and enhanced with the blurred background. Colours present very well with nothing blown out or oversaturated. Suggestion, perhaps a vignette mainly on the lower portion of the image, however, it does present well as it stands.   Posted: 07/04/2024 23:47:59

Hi Tom - Thanks for the vignette suggestion. That will probably do quite nicely - I'll give it a try.   Posted: 07/07/2024 23:18:40

Hi Darcy,
What a lovely image. I hope this finds itself printed and hung on a wall.
Best regards,

Hi Greg - Thanks for the kind comments. Printing it out is a good suggestion, if only for sentimental purposes . . . I don't do that as often as I should.   Posted: 07/07/2024 23:25:24
