Title: Macro Flowers
Post by: JohnC on September 10, 2010, 04:44:21 pm
Just getting into the stride with these now. Sometimes I have to go to f22 to get all a flower in  focus but when it comes to the heart of it like the sunflower then I can open up the aperture  and lose depth of field  for the main flower head.

These are the sunflower and Petunia.

 Many thanks ,glad you liked them. I have an image of Space for my desktop,Conor, it's therapeutic,I'm sure,all those stars going by but  it reminds me that I really need to get some of these photos I do these days into a frame.I'm having  a lot of trouble sizing them and they're  coming back with bits missing,I'm awaiting the last ones to see what they're like.I don't understand what this sizing's about- 'constraints' etc. I have CS2 so if anyone can point me in the right  direction it would be great.

Yes, I've been busy ,Martin.What next I'm thinking. lol.Whales and dolphins off the west coast of Wales (Cardigan Bay)
