Hi Ahmet.
I am not sure that your monster (600 mm lens) is needed for small flower shooting but result is very impressive (thanks a quality of the lens at your skill hands). Wonderful blurriness of the surroundings and precise focus. Details of the flower are sweet. My warm wishes and TFS.

Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
such a lovely flower seen on this exciting rich green background. The purple petals really stand out wonderfully. How lively to see the lines and glow of the flower.
The fruits too are shown in excellent details, hairy and sharp.
A well seen nature shot, Akhi!
Selamlar.

Foozi

Selamlar sayın hocam,
çok güzel bir çalışma olmuş
Güzel bir tür.
Elinize sağlık.
En güzel dileklerimle,
Hoşcakalın.

Selam Ahmed'im,
Bir süredir TN'den uzaktaydım, bu basitliğiyle mükemmel kompozisyonuna bayıldım, harika bir çekim olmuş. Ancak biz "Devetabanı" deyince kocaman, parçalı yapraklı bir süs bitkisi anımsıyoruz, yanılıyor muyuz acaba?
Mehmet

Merhaba Ahmet dostum,
I missed this fine study of the flower of this species of Geranium.
The focusing using the low F was perfect to give fine sharpness against a pleasing neutral BG in a nice composition.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
Selamlar,
Ivan
