Hello Pedro,
A superb image of this gorgeous native plant. The detail is fantastic and the rich purple color of it's petals is stunning to say the least. Love the black BG as it keeps our attention on the flower. Awesome work!!

Hello Pedro,
Very beautiful and well placed in the frame. Wonderful sharpness and adequate depth of field. The dark featureless BG works very well. Beautiful to behold. Well done.

Hello Pedro,
Very fine picture of this Cosmos-flower, which is actually seen at a lot of places in my country. Not an easy flower to photograph. You did well.
