Trying out the 24-70 Mk II on some flora with a 12mm extension tube on a monopod.
C&C welcome.

Really beautiful image, Martin.

A magnificent image, Martin!
Love the delicate colors and (semi) high key aspects.
If I let my imagination go, I also see deadly sharp teeth in the center- like those of a sea creature. Trapped in there and it's goodbye sunlight... goodbye world .

An excellent image, Martin, with lovely colour and detail. My inner symmetry freak did a minor aaargh as you just missed the tip of the bottom petal.

Denise Ippolito has done a similar shot but, she has modified the image.

I haven't done the center of the dahlia as you have and I want to try it some time.

Thanks for sharing such a lovely image and perspective.

A very nice shot Martin. Have you tried a crop that moves the center of the flower off center?

Terrific shot Martin, you did a great job selecting this bloom, the way the colour fades out to the edges of the image really makes the composition for me.
