got to play with a macro lense I'm thinking of purchasing
think i should get it?!
I like the last one, it looks like he's taking a break. What lens is it?
haha ya it kinda does thanx
it's the canon 100mm...
I love my 100. You can also put extension tubes on and get even more magnification. I really don't think you will be disappointed. Of course you'll then need a MT-24EX Twin Flash to go along with it, then you'll start wanting the MP-E 65. It just keeps on getting worse. Macro is very, very, addicting. Trust me, I'm a Dr.:mrgreen:
I also love the last shot!!!! and the dark purple behind the white flowers is GREAT!!!
really like the second one. nice comp. nice colors. sharp focus.
one questions i have though...how did you PP these?
im seeing some interesting banding in some of the color gradients. not sure if this qualifies as CA or not, but i was curious.
most notably image 1. lots of hard lines in there.
and number 2 lower left between the petals.
not pointing these out as a negative, just wondering if it was a result of PP or something else?
hahaha great comments, thanks very much!
i think i will have to purchase this very shortly!!
and perhaps some extension tubes hehe
i'm lucky there were purple flowers in behind!! worked to my advantage
SrBiscuit - thank you!
i'm not sure what banding means....but i didn't really mess around with the colours.
i'm thinking the hard lines you see might be a bit of me over sharpening?
i see what you mean in #2 lower left...
a bit of yellow saturation and over sharpening i think. boo.
thank you though!
