Dear all,

In this picture I tried to capture the "see-through" beauty of a Cosmos flower standing tall against a scorching Sun. It was indeed fascinating how the light could make it way through the fragile and tender petals of this magenta-colored flower.

It was a sunny day and the shining web of the spider which i couldn't see with naked eye but could observe it through the lens. Thanks to the latest technology!

I hope you enjoy the mood in this floral scene.

Best regards,

A floral picture well composed, a good minimalist style.
I love the Cosmos and I enjoy to see the wonderful magenta through the light of the petals.
The different shades of green on the stem are also a visual feast.
Beautiful complementary colors with the bg. Just gorgeous!

Hi Paras,
A beautiful pose and composiiton of this Cosmos flower,
nice blur background with great details,
Excellent 'contre-jour' with great contrast and light,

Beautiful composition and great use of lighting. Details are so sharp I can see the cobweb on the petals. Wonderful colors with good saturation. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras!
Simple, elegant composition. Wonderful blurred BG, which nakes th flower stand out perfectly.
Splendid lighting and nice, soft details of the Comos.
ciao! Vanda

The real "technology" is nature.
The science will arrive late and create trouble.
A work of cameras to share the beauty.
  This is nice

Hi Paras,
