oh my goodness, it's beautiful :)
Nice macro shot steve :)
The details are awesome!
+Pauline Brown +Nathan Johnson Thanks! really appreciated :)
Very pretty! This is the first time I see one this up close!
+Tamara Pruessner Thanks Tamara – it was actually a set up indoor shot so I could use a small aperture and slow shutter speed. Couldn't have done this in the wild so to speak – at least not with my equipment!
+kora foto morgana Can't argue with that :)
+Daniel Chen me too – I had no idea that this was what lavender looked like up close – was pleasantly surprised.
+Steve Johnson – Oh I completely understand. Sometimes the 'wild' just is too wild to get details like this. :D
I am all of a sudden smelling lavender! Thanks for a beautiful start to a wonderful weekend!
This is awesome Steve, love the tones!
Amazing textural quality to this.
Never knew Lavender was so fuzzy!
+Elke Hochban Me neither +Beth Akerman Thanks – just how much texture surprised me! +Nathan Beaulne thanks! appreciated+Melisa Lambert pleasure – hope the weekend remains wonderful :)
this is really cool! love the tones…the hairs…and the little droplet. : )
+shane holsclaw Thanks Shane – wondered if anyone would spot the droplet :)
yeah…very cool! : )
+maru clavier Thanks Maru :)
Gorgeous Beauty. Love the detail.
+Lisa RedWillow Thanks Lisa! – appreciated
Lovely… I so want a real macro lens.
Like your more delicate work also…like this one! Love lavender…good for so many ills.
I see your reflection in the droplet ^^
+Lisa Mikulski 300mm efl, lens to an old wall projector and a tripod and a bit of a crop (: f32 for dof hence the fringing. No macro lense as such – the projector lens functioned the same was as a macro attachment would only it was/is about 12 inches long x 8 inches wide so it just sits on the table. The setup is cumbersome but fun. (:
+Myrna Weinreich Thanks – I like the balance between delicate and not so delicate.
+Matija Pa I wondered about that – I couldn't quite make it out but it should be there (:
Holy smokes +Steve Johnson … Is your middle name Macgyver? :)
+Lisa Mikulski ha! at least he had the excuse that he was saving lives and stuff. I'm just terminally curious, especially regarding optics.
For a moment, I thought that was your reflection on the droplet of water, Bud… ;) Ready with your horrific Selfy later?
+Lawrence del Mundo Hi Lawrence – Was just thinking of posting my last bank statement :)
+Steve Johnson LOL! :D
+Lawrence del Mundo serious answer – I'm drawing a complete blank at the moment but will have something by tomorrow – I hope. How about you – another cryptic one? I like those a lot.
+Steve Johnson I already did a set of practice shots and will see if I can do it again later. :)
This is so dreamy and beautiful!!
+Lawrence del Mundo A true professional! :) I have been photographing food for my wife's next cook book all week and it is really hard to go from food porn to b movie type schlock horror – for me it is at any rate.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
+Jennifer Eden Thanks Jennifer :)
That magical droplet did the trick. Loved this shot +Steve Johnson.
+Paras Shah Thanks – I thought it added something :)
