Dear All,

Another closeup shot from a beautiful white flower seen against a back(sun)light!

I tried to capture the semi-transparent petals of this tender and fragile flower. I like the radial pattern the petals are depicting in their texture. Therefore, I titled this work as: "Powered radially (by sunlight)"

It was a sunny day and the light is great to expose the flower nicely.

Hope you enjoy the shot!

Best regards,

Ciao Paras

Subtle tonal nuances and a soft, diffused light. The throat of the flower is well positioned away from the center. Good sharpness & muted colors. Effective tight framing. Tfs!

Hi Paras
an incredible display of a flower's heart. the excellent macro shot and the right light management emphasize the beauty of the white semi-transparent petals and yellow stamens in nice blending of the colors. good use of tight cropping for a well balanced composition.

Excellent macro shot of the heart of a flower, sharp details and nice light

Olá Paras
I like the centre placement and the way you handle the light. The petals made a big huc.
um abraço

Hello Paras, we are right in the centre of the flower, and the sunlight coming through the petals is wonderful.
The pollen is so clearly visible even the few grains that have rubbed off onto the petals.
Excellent macro work.
Regards Jean.

Boa noite Paras,

Beautiful macro of the flower's heart.
I like the soft light and the low contrast.

Hi Paras , i don't think this one works that well for me , i do like the crop though whereas a sense of intimacy, of closeness i get looking into its mids but nothing much else i am afraid . Lighting ,contrast and clarity are lacking here , the idea behind the tilte is commandable but the scene before me does not live up to its expectations , well not in my view , sorry to disappoint you , nice try ,

Hi Paras,
Very nice macro presentation with great tone of colors ,
Nice focus and great details,
Excellent contrast and light,
Very nice caught of view..

Wow! Awesome composition and macro! I do like the little hint of sunlight. Good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.
