Hello Ori,
A great shot of this rare flowering plant. Unlike many plants it keeps its blooms partially hidden deep in its unique looking leaf structure. Tack sharp focus and displaying exceptional detail and natural colors. The extended portion of its leaves remind me of pine needles. Well done!!

Hello Ori – Very good picture of this Arabis turrita. Excellent, view showing us all the details of the inflorescence, particularly the characteristic disposition of the fruits.

Technical achievement

• Excellent focus on the whole inflorescence (flowers and fruits); maybe a few more leaves would have been welcome
• Perfect exposure with an appropriate choice of aperture/speed and iso
• Perfect depth of field and sharpness
• Good contrast
• Excellent sharpness showing the details of the flower on the top and its characteristic organisation from the Brassicaceae; good details of the fruits and their insertion on the plant
• Precise white balance and exact colour rendering for the butterfly and the flowers
• Good post processing without any excess
• Good black background.


• Interesting picture showing the typical inflorescence of this plant; good capture.
• Efficient framing and composition with an appropriate disposition of the subject in diagonal inside the frame.

Thank you for the sharing.

Have a good day.
