Excelente primera macro de tu nueva lente Shir con agudeza y una iluminación que brinda un efecto maravilloso tanto sobre la flor como sobre las gotas de rocío que la empapan.
Impacta el contraste de la flor y sus colores sobre el fondo tan bien logrado.
Muy buena presentación... felicitaciones y gracias.

Excellent first macro of your new lens Shir with sharpness and an illumination that it offers a wonderful effect so much on the flower as the drops of dew that soak it.
It impacts the contrast of the flower and its colors on the bottom so well achieved.
Very good presentation... congratulations and thank you.

Hi Shir
J'aime beaucoup votre présentation qui nous fait voir des détails de de cette fleur qu'on n'observerait sans doute pas autant , en la voyant dans son état naturel. Un très bon et beau gros plan.
Félicitations et au revoir....JP

Hi Shir

This is a splendid capture!
The dew here looks smashing and you are right: the lens works fantastic and produces extra sharp imaged.
The colors here are most charming and the contrast with the dark BG is superb! I also like the POV here, as well as the impeccable DOF.
Nicely framed and composed, too.
I can't wait for spring/summer, too, but if i had your lens i would already be shimmering of how anxious i would be ;)

Bravo and TFS

Hola Shir,
Extraordinaria la belleza y nitidez conseguida, las gotas realzan muy bien la composición. Un cordial saludo

Hello Shir,
I think the water droplets, dark BG, and interesting light here make the shot great.
Sharp & detailed, excellent DOF.
Very well done.

amazing close up of this invasive plant. greetings for your new lens. Ori
