Default A few flowers

- a bit on the macro side -

Don't ask me the name of the flowers, I don't know

All with the k20d,

1st & 3rd : kiron105mm, diopter +2, flash, (and a portable lamp of 130watt)
2nd: bellows at 150mm, pentax 50mm, (portable lamp 130watt)

Macro 2:1 (4 focus blended images)


Getting as close as possible, still having problems with camera movement.
Macro 3.5:1 (5 focus blended images)


A bit experimented with the lighting.
Macro 2:1 (3 focus blended images)


Hope you enjoyed them

Ronny

#3 is spectacular, lets say "beautifully spooky".

No2 and 3 are so close, but I like the colours in the first.

Incredible details - looks beautiful but also suitable for a science textbook!

I really like #3, although wish it had a little more DOF. Lovely colors.

Thanks Jim,

the funny thing that happened with that shot was that I had a rather hot desk-light to help with the lighting, and through the heat the stamen started to bloom.

Thanks Kjell,

Propped the flash underneath a small flower and this was the end result, was really pleased with the result
