Hello Mushtag :)

Name of the beautiful flower in showy colours, in Poland is Orlik,
English Columbine, and after Latin Aquilegia.
He looks in this light and on the smeared background beautifully.
The very showy composition, I like him very much!

My best wishes.

Perfect sharpness on the yellow stamens with excellent use of a shallow dof & good color saturation. I like the out of focus flower at left which adds a kind of symmetry. Tfs!

Salaam Mushtaq,

Here different colours formation are more attractive as the dark pink with pale yellow are playing the main role but the bokeh of green has much filled the frame, it is well focused and composed, TFS.

Hi Mushtaq! Excellent macro! Beautiful colors and sharpness. Well done. Regards Csabi.

Hello Mushtaq,this is an aquilegia flower,they come in a variety of colours.You have chosen a very prettily coloured example.The profile gives us sight of all the details of the flower.
Beautiful shallow DoF with sharp focus on just a part of it.
The bokeh is delightful,echoing the colours and shapes of the fg flower.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Mushtaq,

The flower is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the flower. The late afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
