Well, need help from TE members here that I've forgotten what species is this plant !
Just a superb natural shaped and cheeky if you what I mean,hence the name I've nicked this flower! Got this pix from Hong Kong Park and liked the unusual shape and bright colour agst the green leaves background.

The photo is nice,but the focus is on the top of the round thing of the flower.Could be better.

You should have saved this to post on Valentine's Day Danny :-)
This certainly appears to be the Anthurium flower but I have never seen that variety with the striped leaves in this part of the world.Nice contrast between the dark greens and the soft pink.

Nice contrast of pink and green. I agree with your focusing in the pistil(?). IMHO, a tighter crop may make this shot more focused.

Good macro! The contrasting colors are powerful! Think DOF could be improved!

I think this could have been sharpened a bit.
I tried a workshop and the sharpened image looked better and it fixed the out of focus part of the flower.
Unfortunately I can't post any more workshops for the day.

Belle macro avec cette dominante rose sur fond vert foncé qui fait ressortir de beaux contours.
Un léger flou se situe sur le pétale mais la composition est t tellement bien présentée qu'il ne se fait sentir que très peut.
Bonne image Bravo

It seem a hard macro to take but you succed very well. I like the contrast between the pink colour of the flower and the dark green in the background. Well done!

A wonderful macro Danny. The detail in the stamen is superb and great DOF. Nice background too and no need to frame.

The latin name of this plant is Calathea Zebrina. I uploaded a difrent pic of this plant just the other day. You will find a description of it there
The photo ot self is really nice. It was also nice to see the flower, which i havent done before. It wasent quit what i thought it would be. I like how you have focused on the pistil, it brings out the details.
