At this plant, blossom starts exactly on strain,between the spines that protect it.
The picture is more an experiment than a image of nature,but I hope you will like.

It may be an experiment, as you say, but it's a very beautiful and successful one! Indeed, I like it very much especially because of the delicate and soft colour tones. The flower is a beauty, and your picture highlight this beauty at best. On the other hand, I would appreciate a little bit more elaborated notes.

Kind regards

Hello Alin,
A fine capture of a pair of flowers that look like they are cultivated in a tropical greenhouse.
I would say that the experiment is successful with a nice combination of sharpness and colours. But cultivated as plants are not encouraged on TN, except in special circumstances it is good to know where you took this.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Alin,

A beautiful macro of this tiny plant. I was surprised to see that you had taken this picture this winter - looks like springtime to me. The colors and details of the little flower are excellent and look marvelous against the green leaves.


Bonjour Alin,
Très belle macro finement détaillée et délicatement colorée dans un cadrage qui me semble tout de même un peu excessif.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
