After showing the 'courniche' for my macro shots in the other post, here they are.

Despite always shot on a hurry (I should have a FZ20 with attached 6T for macros and another one for other shots) with few time tomake creative perspectives (the others walk on), I think I am still improving my macro shots as well as the way to PP them (with Photoshop 7 and several plugins).
The aim is to achieve stunning pictures as those I often see photographed withdSLR plus expensive zooms and, more rarely, by UZ users, some of which have been posting in this forum these years.

No doubt that PP has a big part in it, but I'd like to know from you If you think I have gone too far beyond what can be judged a realistic shoy (i.e. too sharpening, saturation, frames, fake-like effects...).
I might show up some of the untouched originals resized at samesize of the requested picture if you want.

All with FZ20 (with 6T when explicitly stated; also cf. the EXIF data).



#1, with 6T, PP but close to the original in color and saturation. Resized not, cropped

Same shot as #1, but more resized to keepfile size under the limit.
Darkness effect achieved with a plugin and multiply blending method in PS7, in order to achieve a Nikon D70/D100-like color (!).

No cropping, but resized: with 6T and 24x zoom (12x opt + 2x digital), which is new for me. Works fine from 50% resize to lower resizing (= as using a100% 12x) and cleaning it with Noise Ninja PS7 plugin

Very hard to take without a twistable LCD: I had to stay down with ants to achieve the position for counter-light effect (sun was beyond the flower and some trees)
