Rose Drop

After seeing some macro photographs by some fellow photo club members, I decided to purchase a lens and give it a try. I experimented with still life, but I lacked props. My wife suggested flowers. It took time, but success occurred. This favorite even made its way into a poster.

Marc: Flowers and macro lenses is a marriage made in heaven. Between my 200mm and 100mm macro lenses I’ve made many thousands of images of things we normally would overlook. I like your comp and the placement of the drop n the frame. Good work on your DOF management as well. Top notch work. Keep 'em coming. :+1::+1:>=))>

Thank you for the compliment! It took some effort, especially with the depth of field. As a landscape photographer, I always enjoyed flowers in the field. It wasn’t until I started shooting them indoors that I began to appreciate their incredible beauty.

This looks great, Marc. The lines and colors of the rose look good. The big corner-to-corner diagonal is a fine tool. The small and large drops add a lot of extra interest, taking what would be a good macro view into the great realm.

Kept looking at the image, and waited for that drop to fall off. beautifully done image
