Another incredibly beautiful image from your series, Albert.
Did you use the fill flash? The dark BG suggests that.
The frame is well composed and the colours in it are very beautiful.
Thanks for yet another outstanding picture from your collection.

bonjour Albert

une très jolie photographie, excellent POV, DOF et cadrage,
superb focus avec une excellente netteté, dans cette photo
tu t'es servis du Flash n'est-ce pas ? ce n'est pas mentionné
dans les notes, si oui une superbe utilisation du Flash
pour obtenir le background tout noir ou presque
et l'avant-plan lumineux de façon très belle, TFS


Hallo Albert
I wish I had more time............
However I cannot pass this by without saying. Great composition, great contrast and great presentation. Yet another beautiful flower in the shape of a star. Love the spiked and marked stem. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards
