Hello Anton,
Excellent captured of this difficult yellow color. Exposure, pov, composition are great. Very well done.

Hi Anton,
You do some proper macro work here!
Well composed image, personally I'd crop some in the bottom but that's a matter of taste...
Good colours and the details in the flowers stand out well!
