Hello Subhendu,
A stunning photo of this gorgeous flowering plant. Exceptional detail and exposure with an attractive semi blurred BG. A real beauty!!!

Bonjour Subhendu,
Le cadrage me paraît un peu trop grand dans sa partie supérieure mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé sous une bonne profondeur de champ et une agréable lumière qui permettent d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Subhendu,
a very beuatiful composition of the Water Hyacinth, very good sharpness and splendid colours, well done.
Best regards
