Hi Yiannis,
very nice photo of this flower or plant. Excellent point of view. Amazing colours. Perfect composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Yiannis,
I like at your image the beautiful colours and sharp details, all captured from perfect POV. Well done!

Bonjour Yiannis,
Bonne angle de prise de vue permettant d'apprécier, sous une belle lumière et une bonne profondeur de champ, la délicatesse des couleurs et la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Yiannis,
This beautiful image shows what an eye for composition can do. Imagine the plant without the stem going out to the right. We might not have missed it but its presence just adds so much aesthetic value. Well seen and congratulations on a very pleasant image. Best wishes.

Hello Yannis,
A very interesting plant, indeed. Probably not so easy to photograph with this special shape. Lovely and fine tints, I like the subtle pink edges of the heartlike leaves. Excellent presentation.
Kind regards
