I like your colourful expressive picture, its well detailed main object and perfectly blurred green-red BG. The DOV is defined precisely as well as exposure and contrast. The combination of red and white colours in the center of the shot is amazing. TFS and my best wishes.

Hello Benyamin,
hard to say what I like best:the geometry of the fantatic colours. The combination of both makes it a really nice image.

Hello Benyamin
Very beautiful shot of flower,
Perfect composition ,Excellent


Hello Ben,

Great shot - such an amazing flower, and great use of the shallow DOF and your macro lens. Such vivid colours and patterns, very well spotted. Hope you don't mind, I've done a quick workshop - my first one - to suggest a tighter square crop?

Lovely image, TFS

Precioso el color de esta composición. Acertado el encuadre. Muy bueno el PoV.
Saludos Benyamin.

Hi Benyamin!
Nice pov on this flover, combined with sharp focus with excellent dof, shows Natures ordered structure in perfect way.

Hi Benyamin,
A agree with you that is an excellent, rare and beautiful example of symmetry, playing with three and five number. Excellent pov, colors and composition. A litte more dof can help here.
TFS, José M.

Hello Ben,
I like this POV very much and this great sharpness. Colors are well saturated. Composition is very good and I also like this great DOF. I think that this crop is OK. Thanks!

:-) OK-

Hi Benyamin,

Like this shot. Good sharpness and great colors. I particulary like the composition of the shot. It's a bit abstract and different than most of the shot on TN.

Hi Ben!
Very nice macro with great POV details and colours !

Hello Benyamin
A really beautiful and colorful passiflora! We have some nice species in Argentina. I hope to post one soon. I like the intense colours, forms and POV, maybe a bit soft in focus.

Marvelous detail that we rarely see. I love seeing these central patterns. Tfs, J.
