    Hi Arjun,

    Yes it is Hibiscus. I was trying to focus more on the stigma rather than the flower itself. I find them more interesting since we don't normally get to see them at a glance.

    Thanks for dropping by and for the comments.

    Greetings from The Philippines.

    Hi Darwin. Dito lang pala tayo magkikita ano. I know its difficult to get this shot and I also agree with what Robert Sanden said regarding the picture. For a beginning post, it is nice. I know you will get better as you take more picture and become acquainted with your camera. Looking forward to more posts from you and welcome to FC.

    Hi Darwin,

    Welcome to FC! Nice idea to use the flower itself as a soft, blurry background. Small remark: try to shift the depth of field range slightly more to the front, so that the 5 red dots are sharp. They are the "eyes" of your portrait. Maybe some more green at the left, for the balance in the composition?

    greetings, Robert
