Ciao Sergio!
Ottima "cattura" di questo bel fiore (non lo conosco)
Eccellenti dettagli del centro e bel contorno sfumato dei petali. Luce e sfondo fantastici.
Ottima la composizione e la presentazione.
Ciao! Vanda

Superb, fantastic and other mega adjectives.

Hello Sergio!
I like your Echinacea flower..:) also called a cone flower..they are some of my favorites and I do so like your close up shot of its "prickly" center..:) Lovely photo,

HI Sergio..nice focus and tones...great colors and perfect separation from the background.



This is really a wonderful and impressive shot. Very nice details and sharpness.

hello Sergio
wonderful shot....leaving space from the top, nice composition, amazing detail and nice sharp and crisp.


Good Morning Sergio,

A fine capture of the cone of this echinacea, where the colours, the form and the textural details are shown with a pin sharp focus.
Maybe I would crop a little from the top to strengthen the flower's position within the frame.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
