Yet Another Flower Picture

I spent an hour last night playing with my light box and some flowers. I took a LOT of pictures.  What I find truly amazing is that you can have a flower in front of you and never see the spider webs until you take a macro shot and look at it on the computer.  Then, all of the flaws come out.

One thing that I have noticed is that it is very hard to get rid of pollen.  It is everywhere!  So, I guess I chose to embrace it this time.  With these pictures, I am just trying to get good composition, focus and such.  I could not really find "perfect" flowers in the garden.  I really do like some of these shots, though.  Here are four of them.

  1. I like this series, well done!

    There is no such thing like a "perfect flower".
    There are only "digitally post-processed flowers that give the impression to be perfect". ;-)

    I do a lot of macro work, and I almost never stamp away pollen and such things. For me this is part of the flower - and it is fascinating to see so many details!

    Anyway, you did a very good job here!
