Hello Ori
Excellent details in the flowers, very well detached from the dark BG; I really like it!

Merhaba Ori,
Siyah zemin önünde müthiş bir çiçek. Enfes bir sunum. Eline sağlık.


A very interesting and attractive petal structure on this Cyclamen.
I didn't know that this was Israels national flower.
Very nice.

Hi Ori,
magnifique lumière rendue. L'exposition est parfaite. Très beau contraste entre le fond noir et le blanc des fleurs.
La mise au point est excellente , les détails des tiges impressionnants.

One of my favourite flowers in a perfect vertical composition Ori, TFS indeed my friend!

Hi Ori,

Superb detail in this close-up! Excellent exposure too, those white flowers can be tough to expose well.


Bonjour Ori,
Splendide macro très artistique, très finement détaillée et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
