[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ruta graveolens — commonly known as rue or herb-of-grace.
It is grown throughout the world as an ornamental plant in gardens, especially because of its bluish leaves, and also sometimes for its tolerance of hot and dry soil conditions. It is also cultivated as a medicinal herb, as a condiment, and to a lesser extent as an insect repellent. (Wikipedia excerpt)

It is also used in exorcisms to sprinkle holy water or to burn in incenses. It is considered a defence against spells and dark magic.

On PP: Lightroom - huge crop. Used Neat Image in Photoshop to reduce noise, which was quite noticeable, at least in full image size.

Fantastic clear and sharp colours and shapes. What a pleasure to view.

Hi, Lauro. A beautiful composition of this lovely herb flowers, accentuating the grace and beauty. The exposure, depth of field and presentation is excellent. Thank you for the beautiful note. Cheers

Another great POV by beautiful and excellent details and lights indeed 3D artwork well done LAURO BENVINDA

Hello Lauro,a very interesting plant,full of alternative uses,[after reading your notes.]
I like the way that the flowers have collected water, and which offers extra light and reflections into your picture.
Very good sharp focus with a lovely bokeh.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Soberba Lauro, principalmente definição e profundidade.
Grande "tiro".

salut lauro,
après la pluie vient beau temps :)
