I feel I could reach out and stroke the hairs on the stem of the daisy!

I know it's just a matter of personal preference, Mandy, but I'd like these fabulous images even more if small amounts of the petals hadn't been cropped off.

Usually when I do that, it's an accident of framing, but I doubt that in your case!

There was no pp crop. I framed it this way when I took it and could beat myself up ten fold for doing it. Thanks for stopping by. I did HDR rendition of this but not sure if I will post it or not.

Any chance you could post a photo and description of your setup? You've posted a few very nice pictures!

Thanks for inquiring. For this, I made a box of black foam core board. I used a small shop light with a "daylight" bulb and bounced it off the side of the box. Along with this box, I used a tripod, had the mirror locked up and used a shutter release.

You can see more of my photos at: http://amandasphotocreations.smugmug.com/

This was the first time I tried this "box" idea and it works fairly well.

Thanks for stopping by,

Mandy

I love the Iris. The water droplets compliment it very nice.
