Hello aNa

Excellent photo with fine POV, DOF, great focus

Hi Ana,
really beautiful colours. Great point of view. Nice composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello aNa,
The frame is within the rules of TN which read ".... Images may not be digitally manipulated in an image editing program ie, Photoshop except for the following reasons:
i. Copyright notices and (straight-edged, plain) frames ... Cannot contain gradients, textures, blurring or beveling." Whether it is "nice" is a matter of taste. Personally I am getting used to it as more and more members do frame their images but I have not done so...yet. So, coming from a sceptic saying that the frame actually is quite nice, can be taken as a complement....I suppose :) However, in a way I cannot help but think that a frame here adds an artificial element.....perhaps analogous to keeping your Stradivarius in a camphorwood kist...not totally out of place and definitely not vulgar. The composition compensates for the frame. Best wishes for a great weekend...or what is left of it.

Hi Ana,a beautiful red heart made by a lot of flowers,it seems like a jasmin.Magnificent capture whit super colors and excellents details,another beauty from your garden of wonders,i like it!Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano.

Hello Ana,
What a explosion of red....Wonderful flowers with very sharp details and saturated red colors. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ana,
As Neels correctly said, your photo, I mean the frame, is within the TOS. Your pic is beautiful: excellent white balance, colors, compo - but focus seems quite soft. A pity, because the image would be a stunner for me with more sharpness. In spite of the soft focus I give 2 points, because the overall view is so pleasant with great color contrast and composition.
Best regards, László

Hello Ana,
great colour of this beautiful flower with nice sharpness and from a good POV.
in India it is purely a garden flower, in Bengali we call this flower Rangon

Bonjour aNa,
La cadrage me semble un peu trop serré dans le bas de l'image mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé sous un bon angle de prise de vue.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
