Hello Anita,
Very impressive capture! This flower is well presented,
very sharp, and well composed.. Beautiful colors
..Well done


Bonjour Anita et Mike,
Agréable composition dans laquelle les sujets sont bien mis en valeur par la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs, mais, vraisemblablement à cause de l'éclaire, souffrent du manque de contraste.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
