Ha thijs,

Een mooie macro,zeer scherp en de kleuren zijn natuurlijk,de compositie is mooi diagonaal,bedankt en groetjes,

Hi Thijs,
This is super picture. I composition is superb and the colors are amazing too.

PS:I was little busy with work past few weeks, will plan some things in weeks to come will keep you posted on that.

Buen enfoque y profundidad. Buenos colores. Quizás faltaría algo de espacio en la parte superior, aunque eso es a gustos. Me gusta esta fotografía. Un saludo Thijs.
