Hello Philippe,
A photo in very good sharp details and beautiful, well saturated colours. Nice contrasting colours against the BG. I miss a note. Excellent depth of field.

Hallo Philippe
This is really beautiful. It is a basic presentation, but has fine qualities to appreciate, especially the small anthers that is so beautifully seen. The black background highlights the tissue thin golden yellow petals to the best. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
