Brilliant contrast. nice sharpness and the background makes the flower special.

A intricate but lovely shape to this wild flower, Paul.
The well controlled white balance makes the subtle colours stand out well and catches minute details on the white parts brilliantly.
Congrats and all the best!

Hi Paul
That dark background compliments the flower with great contrast. Good natural light from the left, lovely soft colors and good depth of field; everyting is in focus.

Hello Paul,
Very lovely flower-shot. The contrast with the dark background is well chosen, the fine yellow(white of the plant excellently shown. For me it looks like a Snapdragon, which is in Europe rather a garden-plant.
Kind regards
