Bonjour Ana

Le POV choisis et la façon dont c'est cadré est excellent,
et également excellent contraste des tons de couleurs,



Hi Ana, Wow what a fabulous capture of this unknown red flower my good friend, first off the the colours are sensational, i really like the centred whites that strengthens the dynamics of the image, superb lighting control considering the high midday light, the bud between the two blooms really gives the final touch to a formidable composition hmmm crazy stuff, nice and sharp, excellent work here Ana and have a wonderful week,
Best Regards,


Hallo Ana
This is a beautiful flower with striking details and warm colour. Sorry I cannot help you with the identity. The vivid red and green is a great combonation and displays beautifully. I also like the full framed composition and the very close point of view. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Ana, fascinating composition with fantastic flowers, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Magnificent flowers you've posted here Ana, what a beauties.
Splendid clear colours and excellent sharpness. Taken from the best POV in nice composition. Beautiful dark contrasting background.

Hello aNa,
Very good composition with the two flowers facing in different directions and the still closed one towards the bottom right. A very coherent and pleasing arrangement. Interesting combination of sharpness, as can be seen at the edges, with the soft pink velvety sheen on the petals themselves. Are some bits in the centre of the flowers actually white pollen? Lovely illumination and exposure control. Well done and best wishes.

Bonjour Ana,
Une image qui frappe l'oeil par sa coloration vive. Une fleur très belle et une image bien présentée de par sa "composition". Il me semble que tu as fait ici un peu trop de PP work, ce qui aplatit un peu la photo.
Bonne journée

Lovely wild flowers, Ana. You got the colour shades just right in this well composed image.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Ana,
It is such a beautiful flower that it is strange that nobody could identify it yet. Your capture is even more intriguing with absolute sharpness and detail combined with the lovely colours my friend!! The POV, light balance and DOF is stunning.
