Hello Yiannis,
Splendid Cyclamen Flower. Wonderful image with lovely vivid colors and great clarity.
Perfect focus and good contrast.

Ciao Yannis, lovely composition with beautiful cyclamen, wonderful light, splendid colors and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, Happy New Year 2011 to you and your family, ciao Silvio

Kalimera Yianni,
We're neighbours in the gallery today. Extremely beautiful cyclamen portrait with fantastic sharpness, marvellous DoF and great colors. In my home country (Hungary) only Cyclamen purpurascens is living wildly, but quite rare. Fortunately I've managed to find it in September, and made a lot of photos. So I know this isn't an easy flower to shoot at all. Your pic is absolutely excellent. Bravo.
Have a healthy and prosperous 2011, best regards, László

Geia sou Yianni,
Wonderful composition, amazing sharpness and lovely colours.
Happy New Year, Pambos

Outstanding image of a beautiful cyclamen, Yianni! The lighting, colors, and details are superb!

I notice it blooms without leaves. Is that the case with the species?

Do you have also C. persicum in Cyprus?

HAPPY 2011!
