Hi Suzy,
Excellent work, the vibrant pastel-like colours are a nice effect. I also like the glow from the centre of the flower, along with the faded cyan patches around the right hand side. Eye-catching photo. Well done.

Very colourful & psychodelic. This image could be used as a 60's peace emblem! Good dof & sharpness in this superb floral macro. Tfs!

Salut Suzy.
Comme un feu d’artifice les couleurs éclatent sur un fond sombre et montrent leurs plus beaux atouts, La composition est parfaite.
Un beau job photographique.

Hi Suzy,

A wonderful message to Oana through a great shot with multi-colored image!
It wonderfully fits to Oana's personality, I feel the same. A lovely gift for our wonderful friend, Oana.
Good use of CP and Adobe, with well seen sharpness and POV. I like the framing of the picture. Very well composed!

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Hi Suzy,
Looks like a rudbeckia or some type of daisy. The 3/4 composition, the lighting, and the pp work make this such an attractive artwork. Best regards...

Hello Suzy.I find this picture very colorful and eye catching.The colors of the petals are really wonderful! However I would not be honest if I would give you two greenees because of the centre of the flower which lost its definition and became noisy during the post processing work.Otherwise it is a real nice artwork.Thanks for sharing,

Hello Suzy,
Magnificent composition!
Excellent pp work.
Stunnig effect!

HI Suzy,

HOw are you?

Bonjour Suzy,je suis de retour

Et voici une superbe composition avec variations sur les couleurs de l'arc-en-ciel, parfaitement maîtrisées et pleines de force(s).L'aspect artistique pictural fait un peu oublier la fleur que vous nous laissez supposer banale; mais vous en faites un kaléidoscope majestueux et enchanteur comme ceux qui ravissaient mon enfance.
Belle dédicace à Ohana
A bientôt

Hi Suzy:
fantastic work on this shot.
very beautiful colors.
well done

best regards

Hi Dear Suzy

Best wishes
Alireza :)
