[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image was taken in the same place as the previous one. The parasite plant I posted earlier grows on the roots of this plant.

Cistus is a genus of flowering plants in the rockrose family Cistaceae, containing about 20 species (Ellul et al. 2002). They are perennial shrubs found on dry or rocky soils throughout the Mediterranean region, from Morocco and Portugal through to the Middle East, and also on the Canary Islands. The leaves are evergreen, opposite, simple, usually slightly rough-surfaced, 2-8 cm long; in a few species (notably C. ladanifer), the leaves are coated with a highly aromatic resin called labdanum. They have showy 5-petaled flowers ranging from white to purple and dark pink, in a few species with a conspicuous dark red spot at the base of each petal., and together with its many hybrids and cultivars is commonly encountered as a garden flower.

Hola Shir,
Una foto muy conseguida por su sensación tridimensional y la correcta exposición a plena luz. Bello conjunto de flores y capullos y clara visión del ambiente de la planta. Todo en su sitio.
Un saludo, José M.

Hello Shir,
A really wonderful composition where the white flowers really stand out against the dark background. Beautiful lighting, very sharp and excellent colours.
Thanks, Ulla

Preciosa imagen. Cada flor está maravillosamente captada. Muy buenos detalles.
La luz es estupenda Shir.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

This is a beautiful photograph Shir...nice enough to be published. The dof is perfect on flowers and OOF only in the BG. Perfect exposure. Very nice.

Shalom Shir... nice and delicate compo with excellent POV, colors and lighting.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, color, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: sharpness (attention with the compression of the file... the image has 135Kb when the limit is of 200Kb. for what you are losing quality for that reason), notes.

I don't like it: nothing.

The best greetings... Ricardo

Hi Shir,
What a beautiful detailed photo with such awesome clarity and colors. The sunlight really helped you to create this beauty. Great work on the DOF and the composition.

:) tomorrow

Hi Shir, this is a very nice picture. I really like the composition with all these flowers on the foreground, as if they were dancing. The colours are very nice too. It could be the cover of a beautiful botanical book from the 40's. C'est beau, beau, beau. Thanks,
