Martin, really vibrant colors. I think (s)he's ordering someone off to the side to get themselves in gear...

Great Martin.
However I think the colors is too saturated - the green got a bit too much and the black frame is too thick!

But indeed a very nice macro, with lots of details. Well done!

Thanks for your comments Klaus. I toned done the green a little and thinned out the border. I'm not sure about the green but I do prefer the border now.

I think you're right Martin! It's a bit funny about colors. Some like colors much saturated - other more natural. For me, it a matter of making the shot work. You did!

Did you use a flash for this one ?

Very good catch. Colors are very much a subjective thing, But, I'm a Velvia kind of guy so they look great here!!

PS. Velvia is a transparency film made by Fuji. It renders a very saturated result, especially in the green portion of the spectrum and is favored by many outdoor shooters.
