[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is only the plant bulb.
I hope you enjoy this one.

Allamanda cathartica (Golden Trumpet) is an ornamental plant of Allamanda genus in the Apocynaceae family, which is native from Brazil. This plant is cited in Flora Brasiliensis by Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius.

It is mainly used to treat malaria.

Its large flowers are very fragrant. This South American plant is thought to blossom best in full sunshine, and well drained soil.

Great simple image of this lovely plant bulb, with stunning fresh green and appealing colors, brilliant depth of field and incredible simplicity! Bravo Francisco, you have an eye of a photographer in my opinion!

Hello Francisco,
Excellent and beautiful image. Very appropriate background. Good composition too. Well done. Pity you do not say which part and how it is used for treating malaria. Best wishes.


I like your composition. The sharpness, detail, DOF, POV and BG are all great and make a good image.

Impressive photo Francisco. The composition, the colours, the BG and the sharpness are excellent.
