Hello Biswarup,
When I first viewed the thumbnail image I just had to bring this up on my screen. The entire frame is filled with brilliant colors. The unique looking blooms almost appear to have a little flame protruding from their centers. Nicely focused and showing good detail. Love the black BG which adds much to the overall beauty of the photo. The two yellow blooms in contrast to a sea of red is great. Very eye pleasing and a pleasure to view!

Bonjour Biswarup,
Une très belle lumière qui fait resplendir de splendides couleurs dans une bonne composition.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
