Merhaba Ahmet hocam,

Işık ve netliğin mükemmel ayarlandığı çok güzel bir arı çiçeği görüntüsü olmuş. Ayrıca bu güzel çiçeğin arılar ile beraber örümceklerin de ilgi odağı olduğu belli :) Elinize sağlık. Ayrıca Ramazan bayramınızı kutlar, sizlere ve ailenize sağlık, mutluluk ve esenlikler getirmesini dilerim.

En iyi saygılarımla

Hello Ahmet,
Great photo in very beautiful flashlight. It did its work very good, nice black BG. Fantastic details and an excellent composition and POV.
Regards,
Peter

Hi Ahmet,
A very beautiful capture of this orchid. The details in the flower are razor sharp. The use of your flash was perfect and gave the Bg a nice dark tone while illuminating the flower without any blown highlights. Some might say that a bit of cleaning up is good, but I like the spider webbing.
TFS,
Niek

Salam Akhi Ahmet,

An excellent macro with striking colors, sharpness & fine details. Lovely POV & dark BG.

Very nicely done & Shukran Katheeran!

Salam & Best wishes

Hi Ahmet,

A beautiful Orchid to celebrate the Muslim's Festival. The colors, details and textures are just wonderful. I especially like seeing the bud with the opened flower. A perfect background and composition to enhance the beauty of the Orchid.
