this one i like even better than the other one.. nice placement of the pistil? good dof and sharp.. the only thing i would want is a little more flower on the right, let it stretch out a bit further towards a pano format..

LOL dale, thanks!!!!┬* the technical stuff is: nikon D70, sigma 90mm macro. shutter-.5sec, f22, iso200, spot metering, focal length 92mm. natural daylight with tripod...may have used posterboard┬* as a reflector...but i don't remember. there were about 40 shots from this┬* group, i liked this composition best. there are more on my flickr page.┬*┬*as far as PP, i shoot raw, and process through CS2. tweak it as much as possible in raw as far as white balance/exposure, then just basic stuff, some levels or curves┬* if necessary and of course a little sharpening. starting with good lighting is a big help
