    I tried a twist this time. 3 raw exposures during Reversed Macro of some early Redbud Blooms. Combined them using Photmatix and Tonemapped using the Contrast Enhancements (not Detail Enhancements). I really had no clue what I was doing in photomatix, so any c&c is more than welcomed.

    Well, I thought maybe these were some of my better reverse macro's so far. Apparently I'm going downhill based on the responses.

    First time I saw this... But I'm sorry, I don't see anything here that is that interesting. You did a great job with the focus and exposure, but the subject is lacking interest.

    I also don't like the HDR effect on this, in addition to what BoblyBill said.

    Here's the non-HDR edits. Not that it makes a difference. A boring subject, is a boring subject right. Back to the drawing boards for my next RevMacro.

    Still not a great subject, but I do like them better than the HDR ones for sure.

    Thanks for the input. While I kind of liked them, I should have expected this kind of response. I only had about 5-10 minutes to shoot these whereas my previous reverse macro's I've spent a good hour taking different shots.

    Thanks again for the comments/critique.

    Reverse Macro's aren't easy. Good luck!
