Interesting leaf, nice photograph. regards yiannis

Bonjour Philippe,
Good to see you again on TN, my dear Africa-specialist friend! I don't know why only one guy stopped at your pic to write a comment, by my opinion this is an excellent photo. The clearness is incredible, and even you said "the shutter speed" was not very fast, I think all the settings were just optimal. Beautiful color saturation, depth of field, shadows... Absolutely a gorgeous pic, one of the best ones I commented this morning. Bravo! And of course, merci beaucoup.
Have a great Sunday, friendly regards, László
