Hi Ferran,
another interesting and unusual for me flower. Great point of view. Very good sharpness and details.
Have a nice weekend,

Beautiful photo Ferran! Excellent composition and impressive sharpness!

Ciao Ferran, fascinating composition with lovely sedge in great contrast against dark BG, fantastic light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Molt artística amb tan pocs elements. Bona llum i, com és habitual als teus treballs, fons.
A primera vista creia que era un tipus d'all. Suposo que l'he vista alguna vegada... veig que
és molt baixet aquest jonc.

Bon cap de setmana veí.

Hello Ferran,
Very nice photo of this sedge in beautiful light and contrasting colours against the dark background. Excellent sharpness and composition.

Very well shown against the dark background, the colours are excellent. Good detail.

Bonjour Ferran,
Très belle valorisation du sujet par sa bonne opposition sur l'arrière-plan, sa luminosité et la finesse de ses détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
