Playing around with the camera and multiple exposures. Thought this might be a bit of change from the shore birds
Not for everyone , but fun to experiment.

Would you love your thoughts and ideas.

Hope you enjoy,

Birdie

Very cool. For the first 2 did you use two exposures at different zoom levels? Thanks for sharing these.

Fun to see you experimenting Birdie, that is how we grow. If these were mine I would be more than happy with the results, good on you

Nice job, Birdie. I'll tell you what I see. I don't know what kind of effect you were after, but they seem to me that overall they lack a bit on sharpness especially the Focus point.
They also show some hard edges with halos around the petals, especially the first two, the second one mostly on the viewer's left side.
The third image looks the best on my monitor but I'm looking for more sharpness in the center of the flower.
Having said so I really appreciate you experimenting with new techniques. Keep trying. That's what makes us better and frees our creativity

Spectacular colors and remarkable detail, Birdie!

I think the multiple exposures are interesting, but I bet you could be even more "creative"...if you haven't seen it, take a look at Ursula Abresch's work.

Thanks for sharing. ~Greg

Cool experimentation, Birdie.
I like the second image best here.
Another way to use double exposer is to take one sharp image and the second way out of focus.
This adds a glow to the image while still having a hunch of sharpness. Not everyones cup of tea.
Works best on a tripod and well defined separation between subject and BG like in your last image.
Also don't be afraid to shoot at f5 or wider for this.

These are all perfect execution as usual for you with flowers. The second is wonderful with our being able to see through the flower

Geoff, I was using my 105mm macro with a 12 mm extension tube . So, I zoomed with my feet . It is 2 exposures , and yes up close for the first shot and then farther back for the second.
