A windyday, but I'd seen a few shots I wanted to try for, had to bide my time, and eventually got these ... posted in Close-ups. ... Jack.

I like the first one best. The colors and sharpeness is nice and the bug at the bottom of the picture is a nice touch too in that composition.

Colors look a bit muted in the last two.

Mahalo,

Tom

Thanks Tom,

I like both the first and the third ones. I like them for different reasons - the first is the softness. The third because I like well-done pictures from this angle. Too often mine don't quite work - it's not always the easiest view to do right.

Hi Harriet,

None of the shots were easy, lulls in the wind were only a second or two, and I seem to get tensed up waiting for them in a shooting position, which doesn't help. I think with that third shot you need to be very selective on the flower you try it on, it needs to be easily accessible and at a convenient height. Over the years I've had some very nice macros or close-ups with this particular clematis (Nelly Moser), it always seems to be a very photogenic one. These flowers were just a little past there best, colours were starting to fade. ... Jack
