Hello dear friends!
Another flower , this time a HIBISCUS which is very common in my hometown.
Hi George! Hope you like the white balance, the saturation, the sharpness the...( what thing else?...)
Big hug to everybody!

Hibiscus is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is quite large, containing several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly known as hibiscus, sorrel, and flor de Jamaica, or less widely known as rosemallow. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from the Greek word , which was the name Pedanius Dioscorides gave to Althaea officinalis.Wikipédia

Hello Anna,

Exceptional clarity and sharpness.

Ciao Ana, lovely flower with fantastic colors, excellent sharpness and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

lovely sarcastic greeting, which makes me think, do you really need my friendly tips or suggestions dear aNa Ribeiro? Seems that everyone around can give you voluntary a big dark green smile with closed eyes .... so? The white balance, the saturation and the sharpness are very important elements of the image. In this case you've hit the jackpot, aNa...brilliant execution and control over those elements! For me that's one of your very best shots here in technical aspect

Another beautiful flower presentation. The yellow on green is always a winner & with the splash of red makes such a pleasing palette. Fine focus & an exceptional POV for viewing the full features of this flora!

Hello Ana,
Very beautiful photo of this splendid flower in excellent sharpness, fantastic saturated colours and a very pleasing composition.
Have a nice weekend,

Buen trabajo Ana !
Plasmaste muy bien ese difícil color amarillo y la consiguiente luz reflejada en los pétalos
consiguiendo a la vez bastante profundidad de campo con solo f 5.6: fenomenal !
El encuadre a pesar de ser muy ajustado queda bien a mi entender.
La nitidez es muy buena, apreciándose perfectamente la rugosidad de los pétalos.
Luz y colores sorprendentes en este bello ibiscus. Tu mejor trabajo a mi gusto.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Ana,
The thing that impresses me most is the exposure, since I have a difficult time getting it correct when photographing yellow flowers. This one is exposed perfectly, and the focus is pin sharp. Love the framing and beautiful coloration. Great job!!

Chère Ana,
J'ai raté quelques images, me semble-t-il. Tu postes quand je suis absente!
Une très belle image de cet Hibiscus jaune, une couleur pas facile à manipuler en photographie! Un cadrage bien choisi et la netteté est excellente aussi. Bravo!
Merci aussi de ta visite à ma coccinelle.
Bonne journée
