Hello Volkan,
very nice view in excellent sharpness and visual attraction.
soft purple in good light gives a pretty presentation and unique composition.
well seen shot.


merhaba Volkan Bey,

net alan biraz dar kalmış ve biraz detay kaybı olmuş görünüyor. bunun dışında bitkinin yapısını sunan güzel bir makro olmuş.

Selamlar volkan bey,
Kokusu adeta ekrandan geldi:))),
Süper bir tür.
En güzel dileklerimle hoşcakalın
İyi akşamlar.
