you have captured a beautiful flower.

Well done.

Hallo Charalambos
These are beautiful flowers with lovely details and colours and you have captured it very well. It is a straightforward presentation, but contains many features that are so pleasing to the eye. The cerise pink petals together with the off white crown with only a few specs of othe colours in between is very eye-catching and ever so pretty. The natural sunlight in the image is just so beautiful, and lightens up all the colours to their best. Thanks for sharing this flowers with its "friendly" appearance. Best regards.

Hello Pambos,
another pleasant flower specie from your place. Such an exciting view when all other flowers have dried, these few give a wonderful sight. Very lovely contrast of shocking pink on the gray dried ones.
Well seen in excellent composition of good light and details.


Ακόμα ένα όμορφο ενδημικό της Κύπρου αναδεικνύεται μέσα από την εξαιρετική φωτογραφία σου Πάμπο.

Bonjour Charalambos,
La publication accroche bien le regard par la densité de ses éclatantes couleurs mais la profondeur de champ me parait insuffisante pour apprécier pleinement la finesse des détails principalement du coeur des fleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
