A macro of a pale blue hibiscus. This one was my first try of the macro function of my camera and also the best one so far. You can also notice a little white insect. No tripod used

Hallo Karin,
although not specialized on flowers, the thumbnail attracted my attention and I was not disappointed. To the contrary, I was rewarded by an impressive insight into the microworld of an Hibiscus blossom. You present a colourful and detail-rich picture which invites to study the structures of the flower. Thank you for posting.

Hi Karin,
beautiful, what an explosion of colours and with good sharpness. Very well done, I like it

you have caught some amazing set of colours there, that really make the picture, showing us a world we may not have seen before. The detail is a touch soft, the tripod really does assist (as does something like the timer switch to really reduce shake), but I know they are not always handy...

Excellent macro Karin,
Good detail, great colours and good sharpness. exposure and lighting are good. Good POV and composition. The little white

Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week.

Una macro magnifica donde se combina la composicion y color con el detalle botanico

Me gustó muchísimo, nunca había visto un hibisco desde tan cerca... sí me había comido sus pétalos (de niño), pero no tan grande.
Gracias por tu comentario, por lo del horizonte, un saludo amical de Juan Luis.

Hi Karin

What a lovely shot.
The colours are beutiful and the photo is crisp and clear.
Really well done, especially as your camera was hand held and it was your first macro shot.

Hi Karin!
This is among the most beautiful nature photos, really excellent work, art, nature and colors mixed together with great style, this is for art gallery!

i like to photograph hibiscus flowers too! ur photo is quite different because u captured the beauty of what we usually failed to see. nice colors but it would look much better if u apply sharpening.

Increíble belleza la que tu has captado en esta macro Karin... realmente.
Una composición con bello colorido y un contraste con el fondo maravilloso.
Felicitaciones y saludos... Ricardo

Incredible beauty that your you have captured in this macro Karin... really.
A composition with pretty coloring and a contrast with the wonderful background.
Congratulations and greetings... Ricardo

Hello Spain! hello Karin! Nice photo..great colour and sharpnes. very god work from you. Have a nice day.

Schone kleuren en goede compositie.
Beetje kritiek misschien...beetje meer scherpte in 't rood gedeelte vooraan zou waarschijnlijk geen afbreuk gedaan hebben aan 't resultaat? Blijft natuurlijk een macro met weinig scherptediepte.

Hello Karin,

Nice first try (-: What a very nice colorspectrum. Wonderful. The composition is good. BG and POV are also good. A bit out of focus, but thats the problem if you don´t use a tripod with this kind of photography. Well done. Thanks for sharing. Greetings and TFS BOB
