Hello Charalambos
very good details and exposure with optimal focusing and balanced light.

Hello Charalambos,
Again a very subtle flower-picture. I like here the chosen horizontal composition and the fine purple color of this -for me unknown- beautiful Saponaria-species. Excellent light-management and sharpness.
Kind regards
