The four shots were taken under different lighting and exposure conditions. Gears are a D200, a Nikkor macro 105mm to whichan extension tube had been added, and Nikon flash units.

A double-exposure shot with the first exposure ata largeaperture and out-focused setting and the seconda small aperture and in-focused setting. The yellow tonewas the result of under exposure. I like the tone, so keep it as itwas. There is more substanceattained from double exposure.

This time singly exposed. More delicate with the edge of the petals... and the texture on the petal can be seen.

Strangely, contrast increases as the shorter the focal length of the lens becomes. If this one were taken with the Tamron 180mm macro, it would be difficult to see this much texture on the petal using the same lighting condition.

Further closing down on the petals, I got this wavy one.
