one of the common small plants of the region. It was already almost dark, and the ring flash rescued me.Look at the flowers tops, the pollen is pushed out just like toothpaste.

Hi Ori.
I like pictured by you wonderful flower so much. You managed to reflect all beauty of this charming flower excellently. Amazing colours, sharpness and details. Fantastic and lovely for me exposure parameters and ring flash. Great macro shot. Bravo and TFS.

P.S. Did you use tripod?

Bonsoir Ori,
Très bonne maitrise du flash, qui restitue sans les dénaturer les couleurs de ce chardon. Les détails de cette macro sont très spectaculaires, bravo.

Hello Ori,
Exceptional macro Ori with great colors and details, thanks.

That is nice light, and I see the ring flash is the way to do it. My idea is to crop it very tight, and without the stem. It would make a larger view of it, and with the clear focus you have the detail would be so good.

Hi Ori,
The dark BG always looks very good in this kind of shots, it makes the main subject stand out very well. I liked the contrast and colors here, you used the ring flash successfully. The pollen look very interesting. TFS

Excellent shot with great details. Thanks for sharing.

This is a pretty purple popper that looks like its dispensing whipcream. Very nice control of the flash Ori. :)
