[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't use my Sigma Lens all that often, but when my 18-55 mm lens needed repairs, it was all I had, so I experimented with flowers and fell in love with how smooth the pictures turned out! At full zoom the pictures do turn out quite soft, but I am quite fond of the softness, it adds a dramatic effect to the picture!

Hi Ti,
This is gorgeous! I like the color and patterns here. The dramatic warm lighting is super and the image is well composed. I like the soft focus also. Artistic shot well done. Tfs Richard

what really stands out in this is the dramatic lighting. I also like the composition

Hi Tiina!

Was worth trying out the lens, the light through the petals looks wonderful with the self shadows! Composition is also not an everyday one, I like it very much! TFS

Best regards,
