Hi Nikos,rths macro is a bit blurred and noised but very well exposed,while the large view on the WS is truly beautiful and perfect with the big crocuses as a special bonus,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Nikos - Beautiful coloured flower, but little bit soft and BG is noisy. Sorry I can't do any WS here, because in PP, it's not possible to bring out details and sharpness if picture is soft and blurry. Don't you use Tripod? I also don't use. So I try to keep my hand steady, although blurry picture is natural to me too. But like your WS pictures which is showing its natural habitat. Thanks for sharing your work. Regards - Srikumar

Ciao Nikos, lovely composition with nice flower, excellent sharpness, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
