Hola Pedro! Nice flower. Nice lightness and natural colours. Good contrast and sharpness. Fine take. Well done!

nice closeup, TFS Ori

Bonjour Pedro,
C'est une superbe macro pour la finesse des détails bien sur, mais surtout pour la maîtrise et l'exploitation de la lumière sur une couleur difficile à restituer.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

¡Amigo! ¡Qué bárbaro este retrato de la flor de la Muntingia calaubra! Los detalles en los pétalos blancos son magníficos, gracias a que la has captado en la sombra pero con la luz exacta para que cada mínimo aspecto de esta maravilla se aprecie con precisión. Felicitaciones, Pedro.
Gran obra.
