OUT OF THIS WORLD! OMG, Ray. A LIKEY if there ever was one!!!
Ray: You are too kind, Ginnie. [broad smile]
Holy cow, Ray!!!! That is one beautiful shot. I love black backgrounds for colourful flowers Gorgeous!
Ray: Thank you, Mary.
Actually..."Holy Cow" is more appropriate for India, just a little to the west of us..."Holy Bargirl" is probably more appropriate for Thailand. [grin]
A beautiful shot, nice one Ray.
Ray: Thank you, Fotografa. I am pleased you like it.
This is definitely a one of a kind flower composition. Superb image, excellent colors, details and clarity.
Ray: You are very kind, John.
Actually, this is one I shot with the 100mm macro lens, but at a distance of about 10 feet to fit the flowers in...I just used it as a 100mm "prime" lens on this occasion...making use of the equipment I happened to have available.
Superb Ray. Love it.
Ray: They are impressive flowers, which you see growing all around Bangkok.
