Hi Nirmal,
Just marking this shot for a proper critique later. Hoping that my internet problem will be solved by the evening. Sorry again.

well handled lighting makes sure the whites arent whiter than white..
smaller aperture would have helped ...and a tripod..
difficult though because the flowers themselves move in the breeze
not sure what your haze filter is doing..could be robbing you of speed..

Merhaba nirmal. thats realy nice capture an story about this flowers.

Hi Nirmal,
The white colour is really dificult to have a good contrast and well exposure. Your did it very well with your picture. White is good (not over exposed) and all clours are excellent! A GOOD JOB...
