Hello Nikos,
An attractive close-up image of this pretty little flower. Love it's rich yet natural colors and the way it appears to be bowing it's head. Nicely focused and your f/7.1 aperture resulted in good DOF. I like the framing as well and the way you always include a photo of the full plant in the WS.

Bonjour Nikos,
Superbe macro, relativement bien composée malgré un cadrage un peu trop serré sur le haut, valorisant bien le sujet par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs ; la partie haute manque, peut-être, de lumière mais ce n'est qu'un détail.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
