I know these crops aren't for everyone, but I sometimes like to get in close for the detail. Thanks for looking and your comments are always welcome!

Hi Greg,

I prefer the composition of the first one and the darker high lights of the second image.
Both have some great detail.

Cheers Ray

Hi Phil. Thanks for the comments. There are a couple of places in the Long Beach area that I go to and one I've yet to get to...

Rancho Los Alamitos: http://www.rancholosalamitos.com/
Rancho Los Cerritos: http://www.rancholoscerritos.org/

These two above are historical homesteads that feature gardens

CSULB Japanese Gardens: http://csulb.edu/~jgarden/index.html

And the one that supposed to be really nice aside from the Los Angeles Arboretum is the South Coast Botanic Garden: http://www.southcoastbotanicgarden.org/

Nicely done Greg.
I wonder what they would look like just a bit softer, loosing some of the contrast and details

Excellent question Lazlo! I'll make some adjustment to one of them and post it. But I got to tell you, after working so hard to get the lighting just right to capture the details and texture, it may be hard for me to do it!

Greg, I think it might work, but you have gone just a bit too far the other direction and it lost the punch .
I think it is probably between the original and the new version ( at least for my taste)

Great shots Greg, I like the first image best for its tone and the little critter.

Gorgeous images, and I really like the tight crop on these. My personal preference is the original two you presented over the softer version.
