And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin
gorgeous macro lisa
Thanks so much, Chloe. I wish I’d been shooting with a tripod, but I didn’t think to pack it along. I checked out your site. It’s just beautiful. You’re amazingly talented and I’m envious of all those great lenses. My macro is an 85mm. But, I think the 105mm would be nice!!
Glad you stopped in. I’ll check back at your site again, as well.
WOW! Amazing focus!
I almost never use a tripod. Mine is really old (from the light-weight film camera days) and I just don’t trust it with the weight of my DSLR, especially when I have to flip the camera vertically.
I’m torn on the tripod, but sometimes I feel like even the beat of my heart can throw me off when I’m focusing on such a small area. I’m taking a class on macro photography next week at our Desert Botanical Garden. The instructor specifically says to bring a tripod. My macro lens is only an 85mm, so it’s not too, too, heavy. We’ll see. Maybe I’m just wobbly by nature. 🙂
I LOVE this… great DOF it makes the shot. The dark area on the top right sort of bugs me, but at the same time it makes it more interesting and makes me start thinking of how this photo is possible.. Great job
Hey Anna, thanks for the comment. The dark spot is weird. Short of cropping it out, I couldn’t do much with it. I was shooting this flower mostly in filtered shade, but there was a little full sun that poked through and cast a shadow in that spot. The blossom was actually sort of deteriorated in that spot, so it accentuated the shadow. Weird, I know. Thanks for stopping. I love the comments and feedback.
Love that macro- so beautiful
Lisa this is just stunning!
Thanks, Bonnie. I actually used a pseudo Lensbaby effect when I edited, which gave it a lot more softness around the edges. After that it looked like fire to me. Glad you liked it. Thanks so much for your comments. I so appreciate them!
An eye catchy piece of work.. the artsy-elements working magic!
Thank you, so much! I’m glad you liked it. Funny, when I photographed it, I saw a flower. But when I uploaded the pics on to my computer, I saw something completely different. Thanks, again, for your kind comment. I very much appreciate it.
