Hello Denis!
I love this little gentle flower.The POV is very elegant and you managed very well the DOF.I only think that you had the same problem than I: a little lack of sharpness due this f/11.Next time try to shot with a lower f/stop,ok?
Caution:lower f / stop get few light; to make the correct exposure
you need to set a slower shutter speed .So there is the risk of less sharpness even with the tripod.Because of the wind and so on.OK?
Hope you get this comments useful !I did for you what some good friends did to me.
Many thanks for visiting my gallery! I appreciated it!
Have a nice week!
