Hi Jose,

I think this composition is awesome! I like contrast between the blue sky and those white flowers. The sun seems to be hiding behind this petal and it gives an amazing reflection on the leaves and the flowers. POV is great!!! Very well done, TFS,

Hola Zeca, Sobresaliente composición, sobran las palabras, para esta bella foto. saludos y gracias.

Beautiful image, Jose! Excellently balanced exposure showing good detail on backlit petals and leaves. The deep blue sky looks just wonderful. I live in New York area and the sky is hardly ever clear around here in the summer, so I can't take my eyes off of that blue. BTW does the name mean something like "glasses of milk" in Portuguese?

Oi Zeca
Belo trabalho de luz e nitidez, vc trabalhou perfeitamente o que eu reputo como a maior qualidade de um fotografo ou de quem gosta de fotografia...que é trabalhar ou lapidar a luz até o ponto desejado.
parabens e como se diz por aqui TFS
Vai para minhas favoritas :)

Grande Zeca, esta composição está fantástica! Que azul...isto é que faz um grande fotógrafo, uns copinhos de leite que passam a compor uma imagem linda...parabéns como de costume!

Interesting backlit shot, Jose. I really like the pinsipes that run through the flowers and leaves, and the backlighting really brings that out.

Hola Jose,

Excellent composition my friend!!! Using a very appropriate pov you did a great work!!! The colors are so well saturated and you controlled greatly the exposure by having us seeing the different tones of white! Great job and TFS,

Hi Jose,

Excellent shot.
Wonderful DOF and POV.
Clear and crystal colors.
Fantastic light and sharpness.
I like it.
Very well done!

TFS :-)

A idéia de tirar a foto com o Sol bem ao fundo da flôr foi uma excelente idéia, Zeca. Belas cores e o céu de um azul profundo indescritível.
Vai para as minhas favoritas.
Vá em frente!

Hola Jose,
Esta es una inusual y excelente vision, hace una muy bonita e interesante foto. Me gusta la flor a trasluz, el POV y el azul del cielo.
Felicitaciones por las primeras 100 fotos!
