When world will become stale, will only these beautiful plants. Inimitable. The Sharpness, macro. The Fairy-tale flower.

Hi Alex!
Great shot, very sharp details and excellent neutral Bg, I like the composition centered on the plant head.

Am I right Alexei, that this is a thistle? I like the sharpness of the subject offset nicely against the b/g.
Tfs, Jay

PS Perhaps you can still add the ID in the Note.

Dear friend Alexei,
A very "sharp" image.
EXCELLENT focusing of this macro. Can see, clearly, the
the gold orange of this thistle.
Very well done.
Very well presented too.
Best regards,

Hello Alex,
Sometimes I like to go back to the first pictures of a gallery and in yours there are some jewels, like this one. I like the great simplicity of this "stranger-picture". The colors of the background are remarkable, the sharpness just fine and how it should be. A very artistic composition!
Thanks so much
Best regards

Hello Alexei.
This is a fine capture from your early macro and you have captured the image really well with beautiful sharpness and natural tone.
Great work and thanks for sharing.
