Monumental. I like saturated colours and quality.

Color: ****
DOF: ****
POV: ****

Great perspective, I would clone-out the bushes in front.

These giants are really impressive, and the colours are gorgeous. Good POV and DOF.

Nice shot Radu.
I like the angel. Very good DOF , composition and details.
Very well done.

Simplicity, good point of view, DOF and bright colors: recipe for success. Great job Radu.

I love these cacti. My husband and I took a road trip to CA, AZ, NM, and TX this time last year and we really enjoyed our visit to the Saguaro National Park. Seeing these 200 year old cacti was very interesting and awe inspiring. We then went to the Organ Pipe Cactus National Park which is near the Mexico boarder. Thanks for sharing this great photo of one of these giants. I remember reading that they don't get their first "branch" until they are at least 75 years old.

Super! I'm nursing cactis at my sill but... thi is something special. It's funny to see what can happen with a plant when he is happy of the environmet :-)))))))))))))

It was a joke of course ;-) I like an idea to create a monument of the plant. It's realy impressed.
