Hi Yannis,
a very elegant and thoughtful presentation, giving a very good impression of the whole plant by showing the blossoms in crisp sharpness together with some leaves in just the right amount of softness to isolate the blossoms from the background.
With thanks, and best regards,

It is very rare in Israel, too. One additional info point is that it is quite poisonous, like other of the family (named after it is old genus name, Apocynum).



Hello Yiannis,
Very beautiful in great quality. The colours are lovely. A species of oleander commonly grown her in gardens and parks is extremely poisonous. A fabulous image. Best wishes.

Hello Yiannis,
A superb flower-picture! An interesting plant too, I didn't know this Oleander-species which has a most beuatiful and fine coloration. Very well taken your picture with subtle colors and a very pleasing composition.
Thanks and kind regards

Hello Yiannis,

The texture of the flower is very well preserved!
A nice close-up with sharp fine details, great 3D effect from the chosen DoF...
Natural colour repro too..!
