Good Evening All,

This is a floral shot where I tried to capture the moment in which a flower is trying to covey its message that "it is ready to open and will distribute its charm and beauty all over as soon as it is bloomed".

This shot was taken early in the morning because the air is so fresh and it is so peaceful therefore I went for this shot, however I should mention here that there was not that enough light due to which I had to go to higher ISO rating.

Hope you like the mood in the scene.

Have a good start in the week.

Best regards,



ISO=800, Focal length=105 mm, cropped and resized for TL.

Hi Paras,
A splendid macro of this flower in its blooming process! Great light caressing its still folded petals! Great choice of shallow DOF with a glorious blurred BG. A minimal composition with outstanding artistic qualities!
Superb macro photography.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Wonderful close-up of the flower.
Clarity is superb, detail are sharp, and the yellow is vibrant.
Bokeh bg contrasts nicely with the pedals.

Hi Paras, you captured the various hues of the Yellows very well,I like that little touch of pink at its base,your background also balances well with the main subject,I wonder how long it took to be fully awake?

Well seen & captured.TFS

Hi Paras,the simplicity of the composition elevates its beauty.Colors and sharpness are beyond reproach.Friendly greetings,Otto.

Awesome macro and beautiful composition! Love the soft lighting and color. Great use of the dof. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,

Good sharpness & shallow dof, with excellent colour saturation. I like the pyramid shape of the yellow bud. The magenta 'lapel' at the bottom, contrasts well against the green. Tfs!

Beautiful moment with great colour and dof
