A pink lily shot super macro. The petals have bumps and fibers only seen when shot this closely.

Very pretty!!!!!! the dots look so good, Congrats!
also, I’m very very touched to have this favorited :-).it’s the highest form of praise……….. well, besides purchase, LOL!peacebuddy
Hi, Kimmi ! Your compliment is greatly appreciated.What I love about shooting tight and crisp macro is that it brings out a world that I can’t see with my eyes, lol. It’s like entering a whole new world~ and usually ends up being beautiful if caught right.thank you , buddy
this is as “good as it gets”!! fabulous flower macro ~ the color & comp is spot on ~ the textures really pop ~ I can almost smell it’s sweet scent ~ did I get any pollen on my nose from going in on a whiff? lol
thanks, of all photography, macro flowers is the one I much have shot the most. And, lilies in particular.buddy
A wonderful macro – I like particularly your use of dof to make the pollen stems really pop!!
Richard, thanks so much for your compliment. I’m glad you like the rust colored stamen that happened to come out so crisp and sharp. The petals, themselves, have a great spiked texture, which I reveal on other shots, but this one is exactly for how you saw it ! They are new and prime and haven’t started to fall apart, staining the petals, yet.This is in my garden and each year the lilies turn our differently~they cross pollinate and mutate and we wait to see what we’ll get each season, lol.Some of the petals are spiked as I mentioned and some are smooth. Some are smooth edged and some are wavey. Well enough of my rant. Thanks, very much, Richard. Good luck with your work ;-)buddy
Incredible shot and detail. Well done!
