Your macros are brilliant. Love your flowers. It looks as though you are enjoying yourself tremendously!

3 Nov 2010 5:47pm

@Loretta: Thank you. Yes, I am enjoying myself. :-)

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Glorious - such huge presence. In many ways, this is better than seeing the flower itself - although I do not like to admit that.

4 Nov 2010 1:44pm

@Ronnie 2¢: What a wonderful compliment. Go ahead and admit it. One of the joys of macro photography is allowing one to see large what is usually small.

Barbara Kile from Ft. Worth, United States

Oh, exquisite! A lovely specimen and selective focus is perfect!

I just cannot say enough about this incredible image. Have shot these many times, but never as nice as what you have created. Absolutely PERFECT DOF and focus. Just love how the petals radiate away from the center. Gorgeous warm tones. WOW.
