Hello Pedro,
Very beautiful colours and shapes in outstanding composition and impressive DOF. A very pleasant image to view and I cannot find fault or make a suggestion for improvement except that you perhaps could have cloned out the tiny bright areas near the edge on the upper right. And maybe also the slanting stem leading to the bottom right corner.

Pedro Montes,
As a child we had these funnel-shaped flowers all over our properties in Goa, India.
They have a delightful scent like perfumed smell; bees and insects flock into them.
This is a lovely and beautiful presentation.
Has class!!!
A tiny cloning job would have rendered this image to a picture-postcard perfection level.
Best and kind greetings from Mario in Canada.

Hello Pedro

Nice image of Ipomoea in adiagonal align, nice composition. I think that it is oversaturated, it needs more brighteness and it seems a little bit dull. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Pedro,just a bit oversaturated but the sharpness is very very good,a beautiful specie common in my country too and always nice to see with its special blue,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

I love the color of these flowers, Pedro.
Thanks for sharing this image.

Hi Pedro,
Welcome to TN most importantly. Great shot, I love Convulvulaceae, they're so photogenic (also having one in my collection). I'm not fully sure about the oversaturation, in my opinion colors of the flowers look natural. I'd have cropped a little more from right and also a slight strip from the bottom though. Overall, a nice photo, and I hope to see many more of you on our beloved site.
Best regards, László

Hi Pedro, what a very nice and well composed image, lovely saturated colours, the blues stand out very well against the dark green background, superb picture to view, well done,
