Dear Fiend,

"Rose, oh reiner Widerspruch, Lust
Niemandes Sclaf zu sein unter soviel
Lidern." (Rose, oh pure contradiction, joy
of being No-one's sleep, under so
many lids).
That's your photo. I assume your Artist Note.
Have a nice week

Hi Francis

Effective tight framing on the warm colors of the yellow & orange rose with good sharpness & a narrow dof. Nice repetition of shapes & patterns with a soft diffused light. Tfs!

Hello Francis, it couldn't be any other flower than a rose,even from such a close up!
Lovely tight crop making the most of the beautiful colours and soft texture of the petals.
The 'portrait' presentation works just fine, well done.
Regards Jean.

Hello Francis Xavier,
the colors on the petals of the rose and the execution of this macro is very nice in terms of focus, light and performance. With a very nice presentation.
Best regards.

Hi, Francis.What a lovely composition and a great POV to capture the beauty of these beautiful petals. The creative cropping and DOF add to the effect. Photo is sharp, well exposed and soothing. Framing and presentation is excellent and add to the beauty of this bicolored rose with so many tones.Cheers.

Hi Francis, I have to learn a lot to achieve a picture like that - thats what I aim for. - The colors and lightening are superb and I love the whole frame filled.
Thanks for sharing - kind regards Monika
