Hello Sami,
A fine capture of this autumn-flowering species of Narcissus. The two flowers are set in an artistic presentation that combines the whites with a fine contrasting BG and with sharpness where it matters.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hallo Sami
This is beautiful. The colours are soft and beautifully photographed, especially the subtle shine on the petals, and the details of the yellow stamen are well seen. A great macro that is well presented, and have a pure and innocent appearance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Very nice image Sami, I like the interplay of the two flowers. regards Yiannis
