Hi Charalambos.
I like how well you have presented these gentle flowers. Every tiny detail of petals and flower heart is shown perfectly. Colours as well as BG are splendid. Well done. Kind wishes in New Year.

What makes a great picture of a simple flower? Great details and wonderful combination of colours! regards Yiannis

Ciao Pambos. Magnifcient work MF. DOF is perfect and colours are brilliant. Excellente sharp and stunning details.
Have a great 2011!


Kalimera Pambos,

Beautiful, just beautiful! Probably the photo could be a bit improved composition-wise (a little different POV?), because the halfly cropped poppies in the far background are a little disturbing. But - here comes the good news :) - not a lot, because you handled the bg blur very well. Colors and contrast are fantastic, sharpness is second to none, so generally a very nice post, even with the distracting and pointless watermark. Again on the opposite (if I critiqued the watermark), the note, even being short, is great. Thanx for sharing your work.

I wish you & your loved ones a very healthy and prosperous 2011, and I hope we'll see much more botanical photos of you. Friendly regards, László

Giasou Pambos,

Awesome macro capture of this twin beauties with flawles details and clarity. I want to take this opportunity to you and your family a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011.

Hallo Charalambos
A beautifully composed shot which demonstrates you’re artistic, as well as, your photographic skills. Sharp, detailed and with fine saturation.
Papaver hybridum is a lovely flower with wide opened petals that is beautifully seen. I very much like the greyish-blue tips of the anthers, as it stands out delightfully from the flower. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
