Ciao Raimundo, great macro of lovely flower, wonderful natural colors, fine details, excellent sharpness and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

While growing up in the Philippines, my grandmother allowed me to create a banana plot in the family farm. That's how was able to have my own spending money. Nice capture of this banana with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Yes, Raimundo, I do!
I have seen bananas growing but have never seen their flower before.
An excellent sharp shot.My eyes keep coming back to the centre of the shot and those new bananas.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Raimundo.

I, like Jean, have seen many grow but not the bloom in view. Very interesting capture, the broad leaves feast the eye.

stv ;o))

Yes, I like bananas :))
And I like your photo of flowering banana tree, sharp photo with good natural colors

Hi Raimundo,
The vibrant colours do create a fantastic contrast combined with the pinsharpness and a eye catching product, well seen.

Olá Raimundo
Esta foto brilha de luz e cor com a intensidade de um recém nascido (a primeira imagem que me sugeriu a flor).
Um abraço amigo,

Ciao Raimundo,

The banana flower resembles a triffid and almost seems alive. Good color, sharpness & saturation. I might have cropped tighter. The green and magenta colors contrast well against each other. Tfs!

Hi Raimundo
good close up on an interesting part of a banana plant. good management of light and well focused. fine softness of colors.
