Another unidentified plant in the meadow behind my house. I added one of my textures. I wish I'd allowed more room at the top.

Again and again, through deceptively simple photos, you show us the great beauty to be found in close looking.

It is very strange, perhaps it is due to the treatment, but it looks like an engraving, the ones you can see on old botanic books...It 's great, I like it!

@KriKridesign: Thanks. That is the look I was wanting. It was the post processing in Topaz.

Chris from Switzerland

A question for you, Anita..I carry lunattes for farsightedness and, as beginner in photo, I would like to know...
If I want to capture some macro or something with manual focussing...Should I make the focus with or without my medical glasses ? Perhaps it is something very basic but as I told you, i'm beginner...
Thank you for your help:-) !

@Chris: Hi, Chirs: I wear glasses with quite a strong correction for farsightedness. I always wear them when focusing. (Actually, I always wear them, period.) And, for macros I focus manually. I would suggest you wear your glasses also. If you have doubts, try focusing with and then without glasses and see which works best for you. I see you have the Nikon D5000. It should have a little wheel control by the viewfinder to make the viewfinder clear for your particular eyes/glasses. I believe You also have Live View. I use Live View, since my vision, even corrected, isn't all that good. I find it most useful for macro work. Let me know if this doesn't answer your question. Anita
