Hi Tsilla,

Wonderful presentation of this French Mallow image, good use of your depth of field in keeping the centre of the bloom sharp, lovely colours, congratulations Tsilla and thanks for sharing,


Love this photograph Tsilla.
A beautiful flower very well catured, composed and presented. Rich sharpness, colors, textures and details. Nice BG.

Ciao Tsilla

The level point of view works well,
accurate DoF isolates the subjects and creates a 3D feeling...
Great light, that renders a vivid colour palette!

Hi Tsilla,
A fine macro of this pink flower with such docile directional lighting.
A very sharp capture with quite a considerable DOF.
Nice frontal POV with the core of the flower in perfect details.
A very neat presentation.
My best regards,
