Hello Yiannis,
The colour combination within these flowers is very beautiful. Great sharpness, details and taken from a very good POV. Nice matching blurry background.

Hello Yiannis,

How are you friend? Hopefully doing well in 2014. Yes, accept belated New Year's greetings from me.
Listen, I am sorry to miss this marvellous shot. I did sure to comment but somehow missed and missed it badly. After your recent comment to my photo, I suddenly remembered your lovely shot and felt a bit ashamed of myself to tell you the truth.
This is an amazing, sharply focused sunny shot of this lovely flower.Thanks a lot for sharing it, take care.

warm regards / Abid

Hello Yiannis,
What a beautiful sight to behold on this cold snowy January day here in Ohio. The purple and orange contrasting colors are simple gorgeous. I love the way the entire frame is completely filled with radiant colors as well as the fine detail you managed to capture. Great work!!

Kalimera Yiannis,
Beautiful purple flower perfectly framed with other, beautiful purple flowers. :-) Excellent composition with the sharp flowers in just above the central point a little. Interesting image. Probably, with even wider aperture the effect might work more (with more blurred flowers in the bg).
Best regards, László
