Very creative shot, very well composed, the effect that you managed to achive really reminds me of flames. Bravo, excellent work.

A very good work Antonio, colors, composition are great.
There's photos & nice photos, your're in the second one. Have a nice day.

Hi Antonio,
Nice macro. To take the backside of the flower while the front side was lit in strong lighting was a good choice. I can totally see that "fire." The soft focus is okay, in my opinion. It makes for an overall dreamy/surreal mood.
Well done. And, welcome to TL!

great original shot of this flower, very well done

Fire, a good choice for the title with this artistic picture, good light and fine colours, sharpness is not necessary in this "burning scene", really nice done, Antonio !

Mas que linda foto Antonio!!! A luz está um espetáculo e as cores são mais que lindas!!! Acho que é sem dúvida uma das melhores e mais originais macros de flores que vi aqui no TL. Só não a coloco na minha lista de favoritos porque não posso! Descobri hoje que o limite é de 100 fotos e agora para adicionar mais tenho de apagar as outras... Que chato!
De qualquer forma é definitivamente uma das minhas favoritas.
Muitos parabéns António por mais este surpreendente trabalho!


Muito linda esta foto. A iluminaçao está maravilhosa assim com as cores que você conseguiu.

òtimo enquadramento e angulo.

Vou colocar em minhas favoritas !

This is quite simply, amazing Antonio. The colors are spectacular and the field of focus is perfect. I love the soft edges and I don't think it needs more sharpening. Excellent light values. Bravo

i love the smooth flowing lines! it's actually a really good thing that you didn't make it sharp, because fire usually looks really smooth, from the blue flames morphing into yellow and red. i think that's what makes this a successful pic, because the colours and lines flow into each other so flawlessly. congrats on a fantastic pic! wow!

Outstanding angle and perspective... always nice to see someone do something different, and you certainly have done so. Thanks

On fire? For the colors i admit! With that point of view, i have the feeling, the petals, melting to the heart... Excellent POV!

Simply gorgeous!

Alors celle-ci confirme ce que je croyais...tu es bien le même que sur TE...
Alors je critique une fois de plus ce petit chef d'oeuvre....
Bienvenu sur TL...C'est un grand "plus" pour nous

Antonio, after 54 points, there's nothing much to add! :o) Superb photo. I'll have to try it out myself. I really love the way you make the petals stand out with the light.


very nice lighting. nice colors and beautiful flower. great idea, and angle, not many people look at the flower from the botom. I like it a lot. good job.

Adorei esta foto, composição, cores e a mensagem dela, a beleza esta nas pétalas, mas sem a sustentação ela não é nada. Creio eu que era isto que vc queria mostrar.

Fantasic! And its not just about lenses and light, but also about your spirit to see the beauty of details.


splendid ....

This is so beautiful I'm speechless at all.
A very good work Antonio, colors, composition are great.

Creative macro shot with good lighting.

When I saw this one today at TL front page I simply couldn't believe that I've missed this beauty! Colors and composition are excellent but the light is something that makes this work a masterpiece. Great, sharp macro and excellent job! Thanks for sharing.


Wow, love the colors! Que lindo! :-)

olá António!
cada vez que venho a esta galeria até me regalo. vejo aqui verdadeiros exemplares de arte uprema em fotografia.esta foto que agora estou a ver prima pela criatividade pelo primor artístico. a luminosidade aqui é elevada a um grau de perfeição.
Que obra!

Hi! Antonio,

The effect here is so animated and your sharpness is spot on, any more and the effect would be lost. This works because the DOF is minimal and the movement effect of outer zones conveys a flame effect very well. Very well seen indeed. You look where most people don't. A geat capture and a great eye. Thank you for sharing this beauty.


Absolutely perfect Antonio. Wonderful effect...

You have an amazing ability to pick out detail and photograph it in the most beautiful way. This is such a simple picture and yet captures the viewer immediately.
Excellent use of light, texture and detail. PRO!

This is a great creative image.

Antonio, a beautiful macro full of colors and really like in fire!It is fantastic idea of name :)

Wow. That's an amazing shot. I really like the soft focus. Having had sharper focus would've taken away from the warmth of the photo. Your title is also very well chosen.

definitely marvelous, the lines, curves, and composition... all well done, it deserves a 5star rating.. good work..

nice macro. excellent...

Creative and artistic picture - eye catching colours and great shapes. Really stunning picture.
Thanks for sharing
