Default Flowers up close...

I took these with a borrowed 100mm macro and the K10.
I thought they turned out pretty nice.


Full frame shot



this one with a medium crop



and a tighter crop + a touch of curves adjustment in black


Unfortunately I took these in jpeg or I think the cropped ones would have looked better.

Very pretty. Two flowers I don't think I've ever seen before.

Be careful not to cut yourself on them. Nicely composed and great color.

Yeah, right. You aren't going to buy any more lenses. Yep, I really believe that. It's just macro lenses are such an outstanding buy - you get a lens that's incredibly sharp and can bring things closer than you probably wanted. What more can you ask for? You can't borrow that lens forever, can you?
