Hi Saeed,
It's been a while. This one is fascinating. It looks three-dimensional. Would be even more impressive on slide film. Sharpness and contrast are excellent. Very well done.
Best wishes,

Hello Saeed,
Very fine picture of this flower ( a kind of cyclamen, I think). Subtle colours and interesting combination between dead autumnal leaves and new flower. Excellent composition too.
Best regards

Hi Saeed.
Very nice spring shot. Amazing combination of wonderful dry leaves and fresh, beautiful, gentle flower. Excellent opposite composition, great rich colours and perfect DOF. I also like "soft" sharpness of the main subject and moderate blurriness of the BG. This is very suitable for such artistic shot. My compliments and TFS.

A divinely beautiful presentation of the onset of spring in your country, Saeed.
What a curiously shaped, delicately coloured flower growing at the end of a leafless stem!
Fantastic composition with the dead leaves in the background.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Hi Saeed,
très bonne image florale, la netteté fait parfaitement ressortir la fraîcheur de la plante. Lumière bien dosée, bonne composition.


Hi Saeed, lovely flower with splendid colors, excellent sharpness and great details, welcome spring, very well done, have a great week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Saeed,
What a beautiful and delicate flower to celebrate the incoming spring!
I like so much the contrast ofd the image, between the soft purple tone of the flower and the browns of the dead flowers at the back. A very good one.
The focus on the flower is spot on, and got excellent clear and sharp details on it.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Saeed,
What an interesting picture! This flower is so special; it seems to grow on the wrong side :) I like this impression of movement that you captured details, DOF and exposure. This is interesting to see this BG as it looks a bit autumnal :) Well done and thanks,

Hi Saeed,
A beautiful spring flower poking out thruthe dead leaves. Nice vibrant colors and good detail. A nice sign of spring.

Dear Saaed,
this is an extremely well composed shot, the light, the contrast with the dead leaves, the skewed position of the flower, all works in favor of the impression you want to make: spring.
very well done,
My best regards,

Salut Saeed
Très sympatique prise de cette délicate fleur. La composition est parfaite ainsi que les détails et les couleurs.
ICi nous sommes encore en hiver et il annonce encore 5 centimêtres de neige pour cette nuit et 4 autres pour demain.
Merci et au revoir...JP

I believe we are looking at a cyclamen here! What a wonderful thing it is to see this flower in the wild, which in many other countries can only be found in hothouses or indoors!.

I so like to see the new colours and the springing back to live! Meanwhile we are still awaiting the abundance of SPRING here on Canada's East Coast.

I hope you had a great vacation, and I must say that the Persians are smart to celebrate a New Year at the start of Spring!!! Tfs Saeed! jay

Fantástico disparo Saeed.
Bellos tonos y perfecto control de la luz.
Una escena muy agradable.
Saludos amigo, JL.

Hello Saeed,
This is a beautiful flower, and nothing we can see around my place!
The spring is well depicted as the flower grows between all the dry leaves of last year...
Well done on the close-up work, fine colours and details!

Hi Saeed,
nice to see the little signs of sprin popping up every where. Lovely capture, wonderful POV, I like how this flower makes its way through the cover of fall leafes. The colors and details are wonderful.

Hi Saeed,
A really wonderful spring photo, where you combined the freshness of spring and the leftovers of winter and fall. A perfect composition with great sharpness and lighting.

Delicada, grácil y estética macro Saeed desde un punto de vista bien bajo que genera una imagen muy peculiar, con buena agudeza y foco y el maravilloso contraste de los tonos de la solitaria flor con su entorno.
El escaso DOF genera un adecuado trasfondo resaltando los rasgos de la misma.
Saludos desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Delicate, graceful and aesthetic macro Saeed from a very low point of view that generates a very peculiar image, with good sharpness and focus and the wonderful contrast of the tones of the solitary flower with their environment.
Scarce DOF generates an appropriate background standing out the features of the same one.
Greetings from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hi Saeed!
I've seen these flowers only in the flower shops and I'm glad that it can grow freely in the forests of Iran.

Hello Saeed,

I think this Cyclamen it could be new to the science.... Mabye it's Cyclamen cuoum ssp. cuoum or ssp. elegans.

Best wishes

Hi Saeed,
This is a perfect shot of this cyclamen. Great sharpness and nice colours.

wow, very very nice, which Cyclamen is it ? Ori
Probably Cyclamen elegans (ID by Oron Peri)
