I saw them while I was in a haste to catch the bus to Izmir. It was 7 p.m. so the sunlight was not sufficient.

I think that the lower light has helped to darken the background and bring out the white of the flowers so I think you've got an alright shot here and good composition, well done.

Hi Serhan
This is a great capture and well spotted - I sincerely hope much more Trekkies would still realise that and afford you the credit this photo deserves.
The lighting condition, although difficult, actually lend itself to a soft light on these little white flowers, thereby bringing out the delicate textures on the white petals. It also aided in the nice dark BG which enhances the flowers even more. The composition and POV is excellent, the colours are stunning (looking right inside the little flowers at the detail and colours displayed). The DOF is superb and very sharp while the exposure was spot-on with excellent contrast.
Very well done and TFS.

Merhaba Serhan,

framing and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)
Ellerinize sağlık!

Hello Serhan,
perfectly taken shot of the white crocus with excellent details.
Not easy to obtain good details of a white flower against a dark background.
7 p.m. seems to offer a very pleasant light in that time of the year.
Very charming arrangement. No trace to be seen of the hurry you have been in.
Perfect notes, too. Thank you, and best regards,

Lovely flowers. The focus is sharp and the details clear.

Hi serhan,
a great shot.
Really detailed and well composed!!

great photo - managing to keep all the flowers so sharp and clear must not have been easy and they stand out really well from the BG.


çok güzel bir bitki ve iyi bir kompozisyon
