    Sorry about the big frame on this - a bit much I guess.

    Taken handheld - 105mm macro lens, f\2.8, 1\160th, ISO 100
    PP - crop, sharpen, contrast

    C&C welcome --Thanks

    {edit} Hmmmmm - don't understand why things look sharp till I upload them to TPF

    Beautiful color and details, but I think I would have preferred to see the whole flower without the right petal being cut off.

    I, too, like to see the whole flower, unless the flower is in a bunch. Nice job!

    Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. I often cut off a bit of petal on some flowers for a more artisitc effect... but that wasn't the case here...that one petal had damage to it which showed up in photoshop so I cropped it off because I liked the overall shot. I'll be more careful next time. ;) Thanks.

    I like this shot, beautiful colors. Lilies are my absolute favorite. I too, agree about the pedal, but I guess there isn't much you can do if it was damaged. I just recently got this lens, very fun to work with.

    I use photobucket, too. I find that it reduces the quality of certain photos that I upload.

    Thanks. Yes, I've noticed the reduction in quality is only with certain photos, not all and I have yet to determine why.:confused:

    I love shooting daylilies, I find them a real challenge to compose nicely because of their overall structure with the long stamen and curved petals.

    :thumbup: yep, the 105mm lens is my favorite! I never go anywhere without it.
