Merci pour le post

A Merry Christmas and a happy New year to you too Albert!
This is a fine capture of this Madagascar Euphorbia with an excellent sharp depiction of the flowers to show their symmetrical formation with fine sharpness against a pleasing dark contrasting BG.
Thanks and best wishes,

Thank you, Albert, for your good wishes.
A very fitting image for the season's greetings
The colors are beautiful, and the flowers show well against the black BG.
I have never seen these blooms before, and I never cease to be amazed at nature's knack for symmetry.
Well seen and well presented.
TFS. : )
Merry Christmas to you too. : )

Hello Albert,
Euphorbias are a wonderful species and the way in which you've captured this beautiful specimen is superb! Wonderful symmetry and the details of the flowers are very clear and the colours look fantastic against the black background. Very well done!
TFS and all the best wishes for Christmas and the New Year! Ulla

Well... Happy Holidays to you too!

I think the four horizontal lines of blossoms is so interesting Albert. The light on the center parts makes them look like pearls or jewels. It is so perfect.

Hello Albert

A wonderful example of how nature can adapt itself for optimum effect.
The way the flowers are almost arranged in a grid is impressive.
Very good POV and DOF,the dark BG contrasts well.
Lovely sharp focus and detail.

Bonjour Albert,
Très belle macro bien composée sous un excellent angle de prise de vue et une belle lumière permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs avec une excellente opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonjour Albert !
Quelle plante étrange, mais si belle - j'adore sa forme géométrique, tellement régulière. L'image est très joliment composée, et l'arrière-plan noire fait bien ressortir les fleurs. C'est vraiment très joli, et ça convient vraiment très bien à la période de fêtes à laquelle l'image a été publiée. Félicitations !
Valérie.

Bonjour Albert,
Comme tu n'as pas encore publié de nouvelle image, je reviens en arrière et découvre de belles fleurs que j'avais ratées, telle cette magnifique Euphorbe. Magnifiquement photographiée! Bravo.
Une bonne fin de semaine
