the first two ALMOST had me running for my macro Yeah like he can run

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of the first. I get the dof play but my brain can't process this one, sorry

Now 2 & 3 are more what I would expect from you, they are classic Karl shots and I love them. Nice job on those buddy

Tim



No apologies needed Tim, don't over think it on #1
Thanks on #2 and #3 much appreciated buddy

Colour in the winter, thanks for coming through Karl. The last two for me in this set. The first would benefit from more DOF, maybe from focus stacking. That twisted bloom in and out of focus is just too artsy for me. Keep the colour coming please.

Rob


Hello Rob, glad to assist on the color donation! It's not likely I am going to get involved with focus stacking, though I am sure there could be benefits at times, maybe I'll try a tilt and shift lens sometime
Thanks for the visit

Lovey two Karl with #2-3 the standouts.

#1 stunning bg but the dof of the flower on the right takes away from the flower on the left.

#2 another fine looking bg, detail of the front 4- flowers very nice.

#3 love the back ground, color and detail of the flower/image. IMO cropping the bottom a little tighter would help.

Ted


Thanks UT for the visit and sharing some thoughts Much appreciated !

Nice color in the first Karl. Not sure about the flower itself, seems a bit flat perhaps? I really like the thorns of Christ shot. Nice BG and you got the right focus on the blooms. Do you have any that are wider that show the thorns and the contrast of this gnarly plant? The third is my favorite. Clean, simple, great color and that bit of webbing at the base of the flower shows nice detail in the shot!

Greg


Was rather a dull day so available light was flat for sure Greg. Thorn of Christ has some gnarly thorns, I may have a shot to offer that show those.Thanks on #3 and for the comments.

Have not been near these in quite a while Gary, I had a lot of nice ones that the movement on the tripod at the slow speeds ruined Oh well, it was good practice Thanks for the pick buddy....

The blue on red in the first one is excellent. The pink/rose-ish color on green in the second is also nice.

Thanks for sharing

Three beauties, Karl.
If I stretch my imagination a bit, in #3 it looks sorta like the flower became detached from the stem and was put back using cellophane tape . But it sure is purdy.
