A few month's ago I got myself a light tent. Didn't use it very much but with the not so great weather it was time to try it for real.
The only Postprocessing done was cropping and adding the border.

The carnation is with the pentax 50mm smc fa, the Gerbera with the Kiron 105mm

I only have doubt's about the last shot, normally I just delete those but that might have been a mistake.

Ronny

Boredom and bad weather is the mother of creativity. I agree with Glenn, these look professional. Can you post a picture of the entire setup?

Effective use of the light tent - I have found them very useful for close-ups. I like your composition, too. Well done. Color in No.2 is especially nicely rendered.

Hi Ronny,

I've almost convinced myself to get a light tent. I've seen some that look nice and aren't very expensive on ebay. -- Something else to explore, especially after seeing your results. . .

Very nice work!

Sometimes those "ooops" pictures end up being interesting - I think your third one falls into that category. Now that second one is really outstanding - wonderful results!
