Cette fleur est magnifique. Les couleurs et la netteté, également. Bravo pour ce cliché, simple et splendide!

Hi Rob, very beautiful and bright shot of this flower. That very close-up point of view and how you're at level with it makes it look so huge and strong (when in actuality these are little flowers :)). The colors are really striking, and yet still natural looking. I like the shallow depth of field to make this pop out and all those blurred green tones in the background are appealling. I might be careful though about having the petals in the foreground so out-of-focus as they distract from the other parts of the flower that are in-focus. Really wonderful lighting used that creates different tonalities on the white petals (and white is difficult to get good tonality with). Very sharp and detailed. Great shot, TFS!

Hello Rob,

Very beautiful, refreshing shot. Sharp.
Petals far from you are very clear. I guess it would had been better if you took this shot from bit away to avoid front and side petals. But anyway, nice image.

Perfect. But near focal 300mm .... minimum f8 :):):) Larger focal length -the smaller depth. You should more shut :)

Lovely intimate details and light in this macro, Rob. The subdued background is perfect.
Well done
