Très belle photo! Superbes couleurs et composition serrée réussie. Bonne profondeur de champ. Bienvenue sur TN François.

Very nice picture, great colours and definition. One can see even the pollen grains. A beautiful flower captured in the right moment.
Welcome to TN


A very big welcome to TN. This is a stunning macro. The image glows! The detail is fantastic. I can see the pollen on the stamen. Colours are outstanding. I am a big fan of flower macros. I have many uploaded on Treklens, but have a new camera and am having trouble using the macro lens as it takes photos very differet to what I was using. Anyway this is an 11 out of 10 and a favourite. Look forward to more of your work which I see will be quite something if your website gives us an insight. Thanks for sharing (TFS)

An excellent first performance for TN, Francois. I have visited your site: great pictures there!
Nice composition and point of view for this macro. Sharp details too.
I wish you the most cordial welcome on TN.
In the pleasure to admire your next posts and to read your notes and critics.
Thank you for sharing with us.

Bienvenue sur TN, François. Etonnante image. Sur la vignette, on pourrait penser à des flammes bleues et jaunes comme celles d'un grand bec de gaz. Mais, une fois ouverte, les détails sont magnifiques et on voit toute la beauté de cette fleur. Excellente profondeur de champ, belles couleurs douces. Une photo très artistique.

Beautiful colours. Focus and exposure excellent, good note.

This is stunning. The sharpleness, color and exposure is superb.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Fantastic photo, how many shots did you take to get the lighting just right like this?
I am still using a film SLR and would love to know the advantages of the hotshoe flash!

Be careful. This is a cultivated flower and therefore the very strict rules imposed by the web master forbid you to post such a picture.
