Hello Ori, very good contrast and splendid details. Excellente light and colours. Well done Paolo

Hello Ori,
From your note it clearly is an achievement if this image was taken in the wild. Beautiful flowers and excellent dof. With the very small aperture of f45 you are illustrating that optical diffraction does not easily ruin an image. For me, the gain in dof is definitely preferable. Well done.

Great photo. Similar to our Scilla morissi here. regards yiannis

Excellent take of this lovely species. Very good application of the flash!, which let you use f/45, to give you excellent DOF.

Shabbat shalom,


Ori, these flowers are beautiful. great sharpness and detail. Have a great day, Bill

Hi Ori,
Where did you find the flower? (answer in email).
Interesting that in Danin's book the species does not appear at all.
Beautiful Image. Just perfect.
