Hi Annalise, the colours are gorgeous and warm, I like the flower and composition, I do think it is not as sharp as could be but still very good.

Nice shot of the Gazania. I did not know it's endemic to SA though. Never to old to learn. :) thanx for this Annalise.

I love these plants, and have just bought some for my garden - I hope to photograph them soon. You have caught its real beauty and colours, but it could be clearer. Still, well done...

Simply beautiful. The colours are stunning and excellent clarity. Good notes also.
Well done
