[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an inside look into the flower of peach tree.
Here in Israel it is the beginning of the spring season and many kind of flowers are starting to get out from their hides and to fill the fields with their wonderfull colours.
In this picture I tried to create an abstractive composition from a very common flower, it looks like an almonds' flower, it is small flower with diameter of about 3 cm and it has white to pink colours.
The picture is full frame without crop, I hope you will enjoy it.

Hi David!
I envy you spring so much! I like your photo - very colorful and with unusual but very good POV. TFS!

Very good macro Elroyie.
The 150 mm works very well. Very good sharpness, colours and POV.
Great work.

a very nice image, it certainly looks like an abstract to me, which makes it different from other good macro images.

Envy look (regard)! Beautiful (fine) approximation. This composition of seed (seeds) pleases me very.
Best regards

Very good macro Elroyie, the compositon is great as are the colours. The focus and DOF are good. Very nice work.

Very good unusual composition. The brown seeds seem to "float"; good sharpness, DOF and POV. Well done!

Unusual POV but very nice. It works for me! Good and sharp details. TFS!

You reached your goal, IMO, Elroyie! Beautiful abstraction. I intend to buy exactly the same macro lens this spring. It looks like I won't regret :)

I love it! A feel transported into your flower's heart. Beautiful picture! Bravo!

Elroyie, quite an artistic shot. At first, I didn't understand what was going on, but your note explains everything.

A different shot, and that's nice. Great idea.
