Hi Ori
Wonderful detail and sharpness.Excellent composition of this lovely Dianthus,really nice colours

Hi Ori,
Very good this POV from above!
I like the clear details got on that flower, and is so interesting the issue about the different dot patterns on each flower mentioned in your notes.
It's very good and homogenous the illumination.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Good morning Ori,

Very nice close-up.Sharp and beautiful details. Good POV, DOF and naturel colours. BG is also oké. Regards and TFS Bob

Hello Ori,
This is very beautiful Dianthus growing in arid areas. Interesting to read that every single flower has a different dot pattern. Well photographed.

Hi Ori, this is indeed a very beautiful plant, the flower is lovely, very intricate shape with colourful fine markings. Very well focused and nice and sharp, perfect exposure with great light and colour. I wonder if you have this rare species in your botanical collection? Lovely shot all round.

Hi Ori,
Wow, this is quite different from your previous D. libanotis! This one is very beautiful too, amazing pattern and sharp colours that you've captured really well.
Many thanks, Ulla

Bonsoir Ori,
Merci pour cette nouvelle photo de ce très curieux oeillet. Ton image est splendide et très instructive, grace à une profondeur de champs bien choisie.

Absolutely beautiful Ori. This is an amazing species of flora. The colors and shape draw you into it's beauty. Very nice exposure revealing nice details. :)

What a lovely fringed flower. I 'd like that perennial growing in my garden. I'm not into planting annuals but perennials are like a gift every year. Nice detail and color as well as exposure and sharpness in this shot.

Thank you so much for ALL the recent critiques!

Bonjour Ori
Très belle prise de cette superbe fleur, excellente gestion de l'exposition, netteté.
Amicalement Robi

Hi Ori,
This looks very much some Dianthus I gre at Pirongia up north.
I got some seeds from a 'specialist' stand at a store where they also had prehistoric gourds and Venus Fly Trap seeds.
I had these dianthus in pure white and in a mauve colour.
Very beautiful capture.
