You have the focal point better than text books suggest:-) It gives so much clarity and color of the most important center..as if you were looking from your third eye, to third eye of a flower. You know what I mean? Very nice Ivan. It takes a special talent.

Just a quick one today.
Not a classic subject from you, but a very bewautiful one none the less.
I often remember my trips from spring or summer these days, too.
I really like the DOF in this shot and how it brings out the darker part of the flower, leaving a very ncie blurry BG behind.
Excellent POV and lovely vibrant colros, as well.
Bravo and TFS

Today, I drove around 600 km western Turkiye to Nigde (central). I had same weather condition with you: gray and dull. So I cant capture no good photo.
As for your last post, you are very successful for plant photography as much as birds'. This is great with excellent focus and details on flowers. Superb colors on BG. Nicely composed and presented. You write always good and informative notes. Thanks alot for sharing.

Orchids are my favourite, Ivan.
This is a fine specimen from Cyprus. I like the way you have composed this shot, giving a clear view of the major components of this delicate flower.
Thanks and regards.

Prety good result with your 300 +1.4. I'm amazed at the DOF you got for f5.6, my set up would not have done as good I don't think.
Good sharpness and comoposition.

perfect close approach to concentrate all the viewer's attention on the centre of the blossom, giving us a feeling of how a visiting insect might witness its target. I like the strict composition, the precise focussing, the very smooth transitions, the gentle colours, the very well supporting soft distant background. Perfectly describing, artistically pleasing image. Thank you!
With best regards,

Hi friend Ivan,
Nice capture of this betiful orchid of my homeland. TFS friend.
this is may be the endemic species Ophrys morio. Ophrys transhyrcana does not occur in Cyprus. Because of the late time that you took the picture (April is late for Cyprus) there is a possibility for Ophrys hystera.
