Hi Scot,

Love these 2 photos. Each is beautiful in its own right. The flowers look so pure and clean, very beautiful. Soft n subtle yet at the same time strong definite colours.

I expect it wasn't all that easy to get an extreme closeup / macrophoto like that to work so well (with dof and exposure, etc)? Or wasn't it too hard?

The tip part of the stemem (word / spelling? escapes me now)... that are caught by the sun ray seem a bit / almost blown out due to the direct sun light hitting it / them,but it still looks totally natural this way (I mean I guess photography to a large degree is to capture things as they can / do look, and how it looks on my screen represents how I imagine it would look in reality!)

So well done, thanks for sharing!

Paul

Nice capture Scot. I like the sun effect and the lit end amidst the dark ones. I really don't know flower anatomy. The depth of field is truly fantastic. The one thing I can say seems to be a pattern for me recently, it appears a bit soft to me. Does it get too noisy with a little more usm? Maybe it is just this monitor at work though.

Another winner Scot. The crop works nicely too.

represtented on film, don't you think?

i tried the basket thing for a few minutes but then the voices in my head

started a riot and would not ceace until the camera was once again cradled in

my shaking hand.

sorry everyone, but you are stuck with my feeble attempts at picture stuff for a while

yet.

Feeble they are not, Scot.

Nice composition and the colours albeit a little soft for my tastes, work well I think.
