A Calla Lily with its beautiful yellow stamen emerging from its core. A nice reflection on its white delicate cone-shaped big petal.
The Calla Lily is very common in Malta. One finds in nearly every garden in Malta abd for more then four months we enjoy this flower from Mid-February to mid-June. When the sun becomes hotter it gets decayed.

PP work: Cropped from original, enhanced color levels and sharpened

Hi Francis.

A very creative piece, the light and shade and the two prominant tones make up for q very interesting image. Your light source and direction gives good balance throughout the image. Detail is high tariff. TFS

Hello Francis,
The colours are beautiful and the technical quality excellent but the composition is supreme - a great combination of curves in various degrees of sharpness that simply pleases the eye no end. I have been sitting back enjoying and I could carry on about this image for a long time. Well seen and well done my friend. Best wishes.

Beautiful macro of the calla lily! Excellent lighting and good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Francis

A familiar sight as these used to grow in my old backyard. Good tight framing & a nice capture of the waxy texture & flaking pollen. The diagonal angle of the pollen stalks shadow adds tension. Perfect exposure on the white highlights in a difficult shot to do. Tfs!

Hi Francis Xavier,
A good presentation of Cally in terms of sharpness and colors. Superbly presented in this measure, together with a reflection on the lobe of the flower. Very nice details and light. I like the close-up, the whole is very nicely finished with a delicate frame.
My best regards.

This is like an abstract painting - white area with an orange shape, perfect sharpness and light

Hello Francis, a well chosen crop of a close up of the Calla lily.Excellent shallow Dof with precise details of the yellow stamen and the pollen.I like the shadow the stamen creates which adds further interest to your picture.
Regards Jean.
