Hello Raimundo,
A lovely flowering plant presented in an attractive vertical composition. I like the unusual shape of the pretty purple flowers which reminds me somewhat of an orchid. Focus looks sharp and the exposure is just right. Nice clean BG.

Hi Raimundo

Excellent image of Plectranthus in a diagonal align, excellent sharpness and details, nice lighting, nice BG color, very beautiful natural colors.



Hello Raimundo,

Nice to see this beautiful flower(WS too). Color looks natural and well managed BG. Try to use f/22.....No problem, you have tripod. I think you will get more DOF.
Thanks for sharing,
