hi nirmal,
beautiful composition. your note says that this flower is a native of brazil. i have seen a similar flower in kerala. the botanical name is Bauhinia acuminata. (information from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhinia_acuminata: searched using the malayalam name that is know, ie. mandaram). i am not an expert in this field, but nice to know the origin of this flower. tfs.

Hello Nirmal,
a beauty, the way this clear and fresh blossom is opening out of the dark in a pleasantly soft dim light! Thank you.
Best regards,

Hello Nirmal,
This mysterious darkness ad something intresting to this excellent composition! Beautiful soft colours and great details on the center of this flower. White balance is excellent and we can see all details on white petals. Great shot Nirmal :-)
Beat regards and have a great evening...

Bonjour Nirmal,
L'angle de prise de vue est intéressant car il permet de percevoir un maximum de détails sans que le sujet soit déformé et/ou écrasé et, cerise sur le gâteau, la transparence du pétale laisse libre cour à notre imagination afin compléter la découverte de ce que l'on ne voit pas vraiment. Très belle lumière valorisant couleurs et détails bien que je sois un peu choqué par la partie blanche à gauche de l'arrière plan (surexposition ?) mais cela n'est qu'un détail qui n'enlève rien à la qualité de cette image.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
Gérard

Hi Normal. Nice POV of this beautiful flower. Perfect focus and sharpness. Regards, Yvonne
