Hallo Xavier..
Din inima galbena a hibiscusului o imagine superba!
Imi place stilul abrogat si POV-ul ales..
Numai bine

A Sunday adorned with hearts of flowers is a good day.
Excellent capture and presentation of this beautiful hisbisco in which you have given the main focus on the stem of the pollinia.
Beautiful angle, depth and diffuse light.
Very nice,

Hi Francis,

Such a lovely shot with amazing details from the heart of Hibiscus flower!
I love the mood in the picture and the play between light and shadow.
The colors are nice and very well shared in this lovely work.

Just wondering whether you used flash or is this the natural light which is falling on the flower?

Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice Sunday!

Best regards,
