Nice series, the echinacea is my favourite.

xfxgeforced Jun 27, 2007 1:19 AM

thanks, all these were shot on a k100d btw with either the kit 18-55mm lense or my tamron 70-300mm

a few were shot with raynox dcr-250 2.5x macro-converter lense on atop of either of the other two

Real nice series, the dragonfly and the orchid are my fav's.

you have a great eye for framing and seeing the creative possibilities when deciding on a shot. these are all wonderful!

xfxgeforced Jun 27, 2007 9:27 AM

thanks for all the compliments and comments! framing is one of the most important things in photos in my opinion, and it's nice to know that you liked that aspect.

*Do you think it was wise to make the b&w picture so? i thought for those particular ones it didnt really stick out unless it was colorless.

Number 4 there really grabs me the most although they are all just wonderful. Excellent eye for composition. The quarter sunflower with the bee is a 'gotta frame', and number 5 with the desaturated leaves but color (stems?) is stunning.
