Bonjour Daniele,
Excellent! Netteté, compositon, placement dans la toile, le tout c'est très bien fait.
Compliments amicales.

Congratulation on getting new macro lens, Danielle!

This is a beautiful work you produced using new arrival into your camera kit :) The subject itself is very well done however, I am only concerned with the over-colored frame. I do love colors but the frame here seems to overpowering the subject drastically, therefore, i have tried a WS on your work hoping you don't mind.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful macro from a lovely flower!

Best greetings,

Bonjour Daniele,

Wow!!! superbe composition lumineuse.
Juste un entourage de cadre foncé serait mieux.
C'est parfait, bravo.
Bon Week-end Danièle.
Amicalement. Yolande

Bonjour Daniele,
Une grande classe macro!
La présentation est très bonne. Une expérience très réussie, mes chaleureuses félicitations. En attendant d'autres nouvelles expériences et de nouveaux objectifs.
Une merveilleuse journée,

Beautiful Artwork, excellent concept and idea.
Nice exposure and well presented

Hi Daniele,

A fine first posting with your new macro lens. Pin sharp, with nice lighting and background. Frames are always subject to personal taste, so I think a smaller one would present your photo better. One other thought I had is that it might be nice to shoot this on a diagonal, leading in from the right corner. It's fine as is, just my taste.

Warm regards,

Nice capture with yours new macro lens.
Beautiful picture with great colors.
Best regards.Alin.

Immaculate focus, very good macro and rich colour..... The macro has blurred the BG well even at f22...

My opinion on frames - black or white!!! Well, my personal opinion anyway ;-)

Hi Daniele,
What a stunning macro, very original, presented in such a fancy frame matched with the colors of the flower.
Very nice blossom of, perhaps, a fruit tree!
Lovely vivid colors and absolute sharpness.
A neat presentation and congratulations on your first experience in macro photography with your new lens. I assure you that your experiment is 100% successful.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Daniele,

Excellent result. I am not sure about the frame though. A black frame would increase the impact of the colour.


Hi Daniele,
Beautiful colors. A good framing and a beautiful presentation.

Bomtarde danielle
Excellent focus. I believe you will try again. Congratulations.
Um abraço

Bonjour Daniele,
Pour un début, c'est un bon début ! La netteté est excellente et le fond neutre est très bien choisi. Pour le cadre, j'aime moins, mais ça, c'est une affaire de goût !! ;-)

Bonjour Danièle.

Tu sembles avoir fait un très bon investissement. Les détails, la netteté et les couleurs sont excellents.

Continues à pratiquer, tu sembles sur la bonne voie.



Olá Daniele

Linda...linda esta fotografia.

a composição muito bonita e
delicada. Delicada e suave está

gosto com as cores das flores.

Hello Daniele,
I'm not sure about the choice of frame,it overpowers your image IMHO,perhaps just the drop shadow would have been sufficient,but frames are a personal choice & the interest or critique should be on your new lenses performance, re Macro.I like the quality it captures,very crisp ,clear,sharp details & no OE on the whites of the stamen,I think you will be very happy with this lens & this is your first image with it,well taken.May I ask if the background was a grey sky? or, seems a little void of colour.


Hello Daniele,
Nice beginning with new equipment. Clear image, brillant colors and sharp details
