Your aesthetic eye once again managed to take my breath away, friend Pambos! Fantastic depth of field,composition and detail. Simply quality out of this world!
George Veltchev

Ciao Pambos, my today neighbour, lovely trio of beautiful flowers, fantastic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Pambos
This is really gorgeous. It is subtle, very soft on the eye and has a definite ladylike attraction to it. The colours are lovely, the details very delicate. A few of these would look lovely in a little girl's or bridesmaidís hair, I personally would also fancy a few of them. Your floral images are artwork at its best. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Pambos,
very beautiful indeed. The sharpness is so lively ans stunning. I like noting the hairy leaves and branches.
you have given a pleasant view with the out of focus background, enhancing the pink petals.
Lovely shot.
