Hi Michel.
I like close-up picture of this charming small flower. I welcome fruitful use of macro converter (I also have similar one and know how it is fine). Petals and heart of the flowers are reproduced precisely with exact WB and perfect details. Nicely coloured smooth BG is also excellent. My compliments and TFS.

Bonjour Michel,
Un autre point de vue de cette magnifique et délicate fleur,
un beau contraste et lumière présentée dans un beau cadre,
belle netteté et détails ,
C'est très jolie cette composition..

Hello Michel.
Perfect detalis.
Nice color. Very well picture.
Have a good day

Hello Michel.

Bravo pour cette photographie de Houstonia caerulea.

Très belle composition, avec un placement du sujet dans le cadre et une occupation de l'espace parfaits. Peut être un petit regret concernant le cadre extérieur que je trouve un peu trop large.
Le point de vue nous permet d'admirer l'intimité de la fleur, rendue avec une grande netteté. La profondeur de champ est parfaitement calculée et l'arrière plan fait bien ressortir le sujet.
Exposition, contraste et couleurs sont très naturels.


A bientôt pour d'autres photographies
