I was walking around my cousin's apartment complex and took some pics of shrubbery. I liked the soft lighting here in the shade. I titled this post "pseudomacro" because these are more like close ups than true macros. Instead of maximum "zoomage" (I just made that word up), I wanted to focus on lighting, form, and color.
Feedback always appreciated.

Tv=1/125, Av=8, Iso=200, Ec=0, handheld, no flash



Tv=1/60, Av=8, Iso=200, Ec=0.5


Tv=1/20, Av=8, Iso=200, Ec=0

Very nice. I like the "crisp" colors.

My favorite is the second one, but all of them are very nice. They are neat taken together because of the colors.

the lighting was very nice and suits the subjects

you chose well

from a personal view i like to fill the frame more
the first one fills it well
the second and third could of been bigger if taken vertically

also watch for white things that are not part of the subject
they distract

on both the second and third photos i think you could crop out the white out of focus
bits with out spoiling the pics

Ah. Didn't even think about that. Thank you for your observations!

Lovely shots, even without a dedicated "Macro" lens.
