Hello Andreas,
A photo of this flower in beautiful light and colours, very nice contrasting against the black background. Good sharpness and a pleasing composition.

Hallo Andreas
Excellent Macro. Very good colours and perspective. The details is sharp and very beautifully captured. I love the clarity of the fine hairs on the stem. The water droplets is an additional bonus on an already special image. The black backdrop is marvellous. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
