Wow... it looks so bright and clear, superb colors John!
Could tou explain this picture for me, please ;)
Very beautiful macro John (I think the bugs like it very much too) :)) Best wishes Sam
Hello Erwin, Thanks for your kind comments. The photo was taken on a calm clear morning, first because the flower was very tall, about 1.8 meters and I did not want movement and second to get a high shutter speed to stop blur due to camera movement as I had to hold the it above my head and frame on the screen. I did this to acheive the background that I wanted and also to be able to see into the flower. The camera really did the rest.
The only enhancement was mild sharpening in photoshop and I also reduced the file size.
There is also a close up of this currently on page nine of my gallery.
Greetings from Indonesia, John
Hello Sam, Thank you for your kind words. The bugs were indeed having a field day.
Best wishes, John
