Macro Fun


179.
Playing around with my new lens again. I love how the close-up view through the macro lens can render familiar objects completely foreign. Any guesses what this is? You've seen it before.... Scroll down for a hint...





You recognize it now, right?

Yup, the hibiscus. Again.

I knew without scrolling. I love doing macros too!

Christine, you might want to increase contrast locally (easily done in LightRoom) on the shadow on the second shot. I think that it will make it so much more interesting with the play between the bright flower and the dark shadow...

Boris,
Thanks for the suggestion. I finally got around to trying it. You can see both versions of the image here: http://bit.ly/cBiggg

Let me know what you think!
