Hi Raimundo,an hard work of sharpening in PP,maybe over the limits and the pic is very noised...but the purple is very bright and the specie is interesting too. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Raimundo,
An interesting plant which produces a beautiful spiraling cluster of flowers. Nicely focused and composed in an attractive manner. A tad bit of noise in the BG, but this can easily be removed.

Hi Raimundo

Very interesting post, nice composition, beautiful colors. It has over sharpened and despite of low ISO and this is the cause of lower picture quality. You can remove it either in PS or Lr
