What macro lens would you recommend?
28 Apr 2008 12:02pm
@Marcie: Thanks, Marcie. I sent you a direct email. In short, I'm also in the market for a new macro lens and I'm not too happy with mine.
One of the (many) things I admire is that you pay such careful attention to the background, so that you always set the flowers off to advantage but without bringing attention to it. Very carefully planned and exquisitely executed.

@GJC: Why thank you! Such kind words. Interesting that you should mention backgrounds as I was just thinking about that. I've been looking at the macros of some fabulous photographers, and noticing the simplicity of their backgrounds. It is something I need to continue to work on. There is room for much growth.
Great, Anita... :-) I like the background too and the sharpness. Every heard of the concept of synchronicity?

@Earnest: What fun. We both posted almost the same image on the same day!
I relied on synchronicity quite a bit during the 18 years of homeschooling my son, but had forgotten about it. This is a good reminder.
Wonderful shot - the detail is amazing. You have taken a weed that many would try to kill and turned it into a thing of beauty. I guess dandelion photos are popular this time of year!!

@Chris: Thanks! I suppose it is because there are so many dandelions about this time of year. :-)
Macro is a world of it's own! Looks like small starbursts. And, I too like the background. Beautiful!

@Monte Stevens: Thanks. I'm better at taking photos of dandelions than of fireworks. :-)
I had a similar reaction to Monte Stevens'. The seeds appear to be light sources -- so fireworks, star clusters and the like came to mind. Interesting how the blurring on edge next drew my eye so that it was only after living with this photo for a while that I noticed the network of supports holding it all together. I have happy memories of contemplating dandelion clusters on lazy late spring days, but never experienced anything like this!

I'm astonished by the beautiful depth and clarity of this stunning image, Anita. My favorite aspect of the image is how that buttery soft green background very subtly tints some of the dandelion cilia ... beautiful work, Anita!

@Ron: Thank you so very much, Ron!
This is a wonderful image, sharp and with a lovely green backdrop that blends with the 'Sugar baby' well that's what we call them in the UK. Nice one Anita.

@Observing: Thanks so much. Nice to know the name by which they go in Britain.
I like very much macro photo; and this is a great shot!
