Close Up








http://communityphotochallenge.blogspot.com/


I just shot these last night for the challenge. The blooms will look even better in a few days. I guess I'll use the first one although it's not open as much. It's a better composition. The super close up ( image 2 ) was shot with an 18 mm lens with a +4,+2 and a +1 screw-in filter. Illuminated with a flashlight for 10 seconds.











Christmas Cactus (?)


Bonus Pics. I shot these with the standard 18-55 mm non-macro lens

Disregard the previous post below. That's a Cloze Up not a Close Up. ;-)

  1. I like the first one also. I like how the background is dark, & leaves all the attention on the flowers.
    I really love your ClozeUp...Ü...too!

  10. Nice shots Clyde!

    I really like the two single flowers on the back background. The selected DOF really adds interest to the images.
