Hello Yiannis,
An excellent idea to show this endemic thistle-species. The coloration of this Carlina pygmae is so subtle, we don't have this red colors in our species. "Pygmae" because they are small?
Great light-management and a powerful square presentation.

Hi Yiannis,

Bonjour Yiannis,
Malgré l'ouverture affichée, il me semble qu'il manque peut-être d'un tout petit peu de profondeur de champ à moins que l'image soit très légèrement floue ce qui serait tout de même étonnant compte tenu de la vitesse affichée mais les sujets sont tout de même relativement bien valorisés dans une belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Yiannis,
Not particularly attractive in thumbnail but FABULOUS full screen! The colours, composition and quality are all top notch. What a pleasure to view! Well done and best wishes.

Hello Yiannis,
I must say you have some gorgeous flowering plants growing in your area of the world. This is a very colorful and beautifully shaped flower. The detail is excellent and the composition is very attractive. Super job!!

Hello Yiannis,

The complex flower is well recorded!
The vertical point of view works well and the chosen DoF covers both flowers...
Lovely colour palette, good 3D feeling!
