Hello Ori – Very good picture of this Drimia maritima. Excellent, view showing us a few details of the inflorescence. Maybe could you gives us another view of the enormous bulb?

Technical achievement

• Excellent focus on the whole inflorescence (flowers)
• Perfect exposure with an appropriate choice of aperture/speed and iso
• Perfect depth of field and sharpness
• Good contrast
• Excellent sharpness showing the details of the tiny flowers
• Precise white balance and exact colour rendering for the flowers
• Good post processing without any excess
• Good black background.


• Interesting picture showing the typical inflorescence of this uncommon plant; good capture.
• Efficient framing and composition with an appropriate disposition of the subject in the middle of the vertical frame.

Thank you for the sharing.

Have a good day.
