Hello Charalambos friend!
We are neighbords today!... Is an honor for me!
This is a plant which has a very attractive structure, you have managed to make us see the picture all the opulence of this plant and creating a pleasant isual effect. Much of the area where the plant grows can be seen thanks to the colors around. Nice central composition and a DOF really well managed. Of course, very interesting species and short but useful note.
Regards, Jesús
Have a nice week!

Hello Pambos,
Again a splendid flower-shot showing a most beautiful Sedum species. You always manage so well the light which makes the flower almost shine and show its beauty in such a nice way. Bravo again!
Kind regards

Hi Charalambos,

Γεια σου Πάμπο.
Ακόμα μια εντυπωσιακή φωτογραφία ενδημικού φυτού. Τα χρώματα είναι φανταστικά και η ευκρίνεια όπως πάντα εξαιρετική

Hello Pambos,
The definition on the flowers and the pastel colours combine into a very pleasing effect. You might have cropped off the rocks at the bottom but that is a matter of taste. Well done.
