[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Há mais de 400 espécies de Hibisco catalogadas e muitos são os nomes por que é conhecida esta flor: papoula, graxa-de-soldado, mimo-de-vênus, hibisco-da-china e rosa-da-china. Suas folhas, quando esfregadas sobre o couro, deixam-no com aspecto lustroso. Antigamente, para economizar, os estudantes a empregavam para lustrar os sapatos, justificando mais um apelido: graxa-de-estudante. As flores podem ser simples ou dobradas, chegando a 20 ou 25 cm.

Essas flores são originárias da Ásia Tropical. Em 1923, as flores do Hibisco foram eleitas o símbolo nacional do Havaí e da Malásia.

Hi Vera.
Wonderful use of white/black tones for your truly art picture. DOF and details of all attractive parts of the flowers are superb. Composition is great Bravo and my kind wishes in 2009. Happy New Year, dear friend.

Hi Vera.

A different kind of pov of this double hibiscus. Well framed but I somehow miss the color. Good contrast and saturation on this b&w image.

Regards,
Jusni

Hi Vera,

good composition and nice pov.
The black/white picture does it good.

hello Vera

This must be the 1st hibiscus in white that I have seen in the world! I would like to find a flower like this! No color.

No, just kidding.

It looks a bit different but I like the departure from a color version of the macro view, especially with being a pairing. Nice work.

tfs, bill

Ciao Vera, lovely couple with fantastic drops, splendid B&W, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Vera,

Bonjour Vera,
L'idée de publier des photographies de fleurs en noir et blanc est pour le moins originale et la réussite est au rendez-vous avec un très bon graphisme.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
Gérard

Adquiriste aqui um tom místico a imagem, muita qualidade no olhar ao fotografar.

Ciao Vera,
bellissimo uso delle tonalità in Bianco e Nero, un tipo di fotografia che ho praticato molto, ma con pellicola (film); mi piace molto anche la scelta compositiva stretta che crea un ottimo equilibrio senza alcun elemento di distrazione, eccellente definizione con i bei dettagli delle gocce d'acqua.
TFS. Buon week end.
Maurizio

This is a great idea Vera! Perfect management of BW and intrigant drops. I like the compo too. Very well done.
