Hallo Yiannis
The colours of this Dianthus zonatus is awesome and it screams out for attention. Wow it is really radiant. The finer details on the petals is just as eye-catching and I like the composition and point of view too. It has a definite feminine touch to it. I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Εντυπωσιακός Dianthus Γιάννη! Τα χρώματα είναι φανταστικά

Lovely picture with good colour and clarity.

Hello Yiannis,

Striking flower in the most vivid, natural color with fine focus and composition and with the optimum, complimentary bokeh. So pleasing to the eye, very well done!



Kalimera Yiannis,
Beautiful "shallow DoF" photo, where only the small focused area is sharp, everything else is blurred. Interesting experiment in macro photography. At the same time I hope you'll return to Tn soon and we can enjoy your newer shots about the fantasticc cypriot flora and fauna.
Best regards, László
