Ciao Raimundo, lovely composition with fantastic orchids, wonderful natural colors, splendid light and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Raimundo,
Agréable publication valorisant relativement bien les deux sujets qui ne s'opposent cependant pas suffisamment à l'arrière plan.
Merci pour le partage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
