[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Marigold, A member of the genus Tagetes, Marigolds are an annual flower and member of the family Asteraceae.
This could be Tagtes erecta, not sure.

In Sunday outing to Lalbagh found these beautiful marigold flowers and was attracted to its brilliant colors. There were so many and difficult to select particular flower, took few images and like this one whee I opened the lens to maximum.
Marigold flowers are beautiful and in abundance which originated from Americas...very interesting flower species which comes in various colors and sizes..

Hello Nagaraj,
How are you friend? Hope 2014 is going well for you. I would simply call it highly artistic shot of great beauty!The oversatured background colour, the distant faded, blurred twin of the one in the foreground and the riot of diffused colours, it is a rare beauty! Thanks a lot for sharing this little artistry in photography with us. Take care,

warm regards / Abid

Hello Nagaraj,
Missed this artistic flower-picture. Love the fine color-play and the chosen composition with the second Marigold just like a shadow in the background. Well seen!

Hello Nagraj,

A very common flower and very important one in India. It is also very comment in Laos and used in many event at the temples. It is also one of my favorite flowers for nostalgic reason. It makes me missed my childhood home. Love the beautiful brownish read and the golden tone is glorious.



Hi Nagaraj,
The golden tone you created is unbelievably beautiful, and the composition's okay also... what a pity the closest flower isn't as sharp as it should be... Should have been a fabulous pic with great sharpness, not just simply a good one. Well, maybe next time!
Best regards, László
