Bonjour Nirmal,
Une effet artistique indéniable pour cette tache jaune s'opposant merveilleusement sur l'arrière plan vert. Le sujet est bien valorisé par la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonne présentation pour cette fleur que l'on ne voit guère ici.
Bonne journée.

Hoi nirmal,
