This photo was taken with fill flash (+2 pose). After taking I saw there are two bugs. It was very cold day and it was blowing very strong. There were tears in my eyes. Because of this I couldn't see the ebject very nice. I trusted in autofocus of my Minolta lens.

I hope this pohoto will not delete... I'm still sad for my loss photos...

Hi Fevzi

First of all i would like to share with you my feeling for regret towards your lost photos...it's indeed a big shame...they really were beautiful!

This is really an amazing capture!
Not only did you managed to get a wonderful macro of this lovely flower, but you also caught two little insects crawling on it...and they are all razor-sharp! Great auto-focus on your lens, but also very good DOF - which was your choice ;)
The colors are also superb, the POV is excellent and the exposure is spot-on.

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Fevzi,
C'est une belle image de l'inflorescence de l'asphodèle juste prête à éclore. Ton image montre bien la grande taille de l'espèce et la profusion de fleurs qui se préparent. La note, qui nous parle des usages de la plante, est très intéressante.
Salutations

A superb picture to make a fresh beginning after the great loss, Fevzi.
Yes, those two insects on the beautiful plant add to the importance of the picture.

Hi Fevzi.
Your picture is really nice piece of high art. Bravo, my dear friend. Esthetically and technically your picture is created irreproachably: amazing details of the plant and perfect blurriness of the BG. Colour palette and lighting are simply fantastic. Bravo and TFS.
