The sun was managing to make its way through the tree branches, & I liked how it was striking this bud with its warmth.I'm still trying out my 50mm 1.8 fixed lens

Hi Ronald

Nice bokeh & repetition of the bg circles of confusion with superb colour saturation & density. Excellent graphism & frontal light on the green leaves with no serious reflections off hot spots which sometimes happens. Good use of a shallow dof too with perfect fg sharpness. Tfs!

Ciao Ronald, lovely composition with beautiful flower, fantastic colors, excellent sharpness and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ron.

I do like how you have captured this bud with the way the leaves droop down to enhance the new arrival of the bloom. The full light works well in showing the textures of these waxy leaves, nice presentation. TFS

Hi Ronald,
Razor sharpness on this bud adorned with splendid lighting. I like the frame you adapted and the beautiful highlights on the leaves. A splendid bokeh BG and quite a neat presentation.

Awesome capture! Good use of the dof and lighting to isolate the bud. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Ronald, the colour, pattern and gloss of the leaves really stand out here.
The suggestion of a red flower just peeping from the bud,means something beautiful soon to come.
I love the bokeh behind the in focus bud.
Good work.
Best wishes Jean.

Boa noite Ron,

Excellent lighting, focus and contrast.
Beautiful colors and a very good presentation.
