White is a hard color to get correct exposure on, but you did a fine job in this particular image. Detail is outstanding, color is natural and exposure is right on the money. Super job!!

Bonjour Gérad,
Avais raté ces Hélianthèmes des Apennins, fleurs que j'ai vues par hasard hier dans notre Jardin botanique aussi. Je me suis rendue compte que cette fleur n'était pas si facile à photographier...parfaite maîtrise du blanc!
Bonne journée
Amitiés

Bonjour Gerard,
Beautiful rock roses. Spectacular composition, splendid sharpness and gorgeous colors, plus I love the depth of field, too. In my home country (Hungary) the yellow-flowered species, Helianthemum nummularium is living, it's quite frequent on and near limestone rocks.
I wish you & your loved ones merry Christmas; best regards, László

simple very beautiful picture, wonderful colors and lighting!
best regards Gerard
