Hi Charalambos.
You have presented this charming plant with great taste. Plant is isolated from attractive surrounding perfectly. DOF is precise. Diagonal structure of the shot is also wonderful as well as combination of lights and shadows. Details of the plant are ultimate and blurriness of the ground and all other object at BG are very pleasant for look. Well done and TFS.

Hello Charalambos

great DOF, i like also the dark BG
Have a good night

Hello Pambos,
A superb portrayal of this Papaver ssp. The lighting, colours, sharpness, composition of the flower, leaves and bud growing on the slope and contrasting BG all contribue to a first class image.
Well done and thanks.
Best wishes for 2011!

Hello Charalambos,
The majority of the photographs here are technically excellent beautiful images of animals, plants and insects and I think they really do serve a very good purpose. This image, in my opinion, has artistic merit. Congratulations, it is very special.
