Merhaba Volkan, Senin bu çiçeği görünce ben de geçenlerde çektiğim bir çiçeği yükledim. Çiçek yapıları çok benziyor. Aynı tür olmasa bile Büyük ihtimal benimki de keten.
Eline sağlık,

Excellent photo with good detail. One of the most difficult things to photograph as it is always swaying in the wind. regards yiannis

Volkan Bey bu miniminnacık ve narin çiçeği çok güzel netlemişsiniz.Tebrikler.

Hello Volkan,
A beutiful flower image once again. Slightly overexposed on the bottom half of the flower but very good as is. And no shortage of DOF. Well done.

Hy Volkan
