Hi Ena.
Amazing in every respect shot. First it is fine flower. Second, you managed to shot all its beauty. Fantastic reproduction of colour tones, texture and tiny details of the flowers. Neutral well blurred (quite a little bit) BG is wonderful. And all together this is true masterpiece. Bravo.

bravo, very very nice flower, I struggle to get yellow flowers good, this is excellent in all respects. tfs and best regards h

Hello Ena !
This is a wonderful little flower ! I am more used to see them in gardens, I didn't know they were growing wild, but well, you can learn every day on TN ! :-) There are excellent details on the picture, nice natural colors, beautiful composition and POV, and the BG is just blurred enough to make the flower stand out nicely. Very well done !

Out here where I come from we call these things pansies. LOL!!!!

Nice capture. Good colors and detail. Good luck with your thesis. One thing is for sure, you will have great pictures to include in it. :)
