What a wonderful shot ! Details and colors are excellent, but what I prefer on this shot is the perfect symetry of these fruits, all 4 of them are identical. Good BG too, nicely blurred. It is really a very beautidul plant. Very well done !

Hola Shir,
Me gusta muchísimo la foto que nos muestras hoy. La composición es atractiva, los detalles son de una gran calidad, el enfoque es perfecto, la luz muy equilibrada, agradable y luminosa, el fondo queda bien. Especialmente me gusta la alternancia de los frutos de un lado a otro de la rama y el armonioso ángulo que forma el soporte de cada fruto.
Un saludo cordial,
José Miguel

Hi Shir,
Beautiful and very original shot with outstanding composition and very good use of light. I particularly like the symmetry of the pods - beautiful.

I really like this arangement, and the fact that you have managed to get all of them perfectly in focus is wonderful and for once I even like the spider's webs....

TFS and PT's :-)

Hi Shir.
Excellent combination of green and blue colours and distance between main subject and BG. Great sharpness, DOF and POV complete the integral form of this picture. Perfect done and TFS.
