Hi Gerard.
You have shared a very cine shot of wonderful flowers. DOF is great and all plant is in focus and surrounded with nicely blurred leaves. Soft lighting and vivid green colours are a bit unusual but very pleasant for eyes. Details off the image are great too. TFS and kind wishes.

Hello Gerard,
What an attractive cluster of light pinkish colored blooms. I don't believe I have ever seen this type of flower before. I really like their star shaped petals and unique looking stamen. Shown in excellent detail and vivid yet natural colors. Great shot!!
