Dear Trekkers,

This is a simple closeup capture of a lovely flower with a tiny beautiful heart, and the way its filament projecting outwards were giving an impression as if this flower is "born to be star"!

Taken during the forenoon time and light is nice to expose the flower effectively.

Looking forward to your feedback!

Best greetings,



ISO=320, Focal length=105 mm, minor contrast adjustment and color saturation, thereafter cropped and finally resized for TL.

Hi Paras.

A star indeed, in many ways too.
A wonderful explosion of pastel colours and shape, the centre shot works well, very good focal point achieved also. tfs

stv ;o))

Hello Paras, this looks as if it could be the centre of a Clematis flower.
The tight crop focusing on the stamen is superb,and as you describe they do give the effect of a star.
The colours and pattern are beautiful, thanks for sharing.
Regards Jean.

Indeed! And you made it possible. Awesome capture of this flower. Love the soft lighting and soft focus. Wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

Wow Paras, you call this a simple closeup, to me it is a wonder of Nature !

Superb capture of the beauty and the fragility. Great work in exposure, colors and details.
Just enough DOF. Good job done.
