The Center Stage by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

While thinking on how and where to take a picture of this beautiful Hibiscus flower that we call amapola in Spanish language, that grew on my grandma’s garden, I thought on how could I focus on just the small part of this flower. So took out a macro 50mm- f/2.8 lens and there we go.

Nikon Z50 with Sigma with 50mm f/2.8 | Exposure 1/2500s @ f/4 | ISO 100 | Focal Length 50mm
