Artist's Description

There is a point where in the mystery of existence contradictions meet; where movement is not all movement and stillness is not all stillness; where the idea and the form, the within and the without, are united; where infinite becomes finite, yet not. -Rabindranath Tagore

This rose image represents another of my explorations into the world of macro images captured at large apertures, in this case wide open at f/2. I know macro photographers who are horrified at the idea of shooting at anything wider than about f/16, and for them even f/8 is “too soft.” I counter that I am not shooting science illustrations but rather (I hope) artistic images that are as much about emotion as image detail. If you can feel the love I have for my floral subjects, then I am happy. :) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/2, 1/3200 sec., ISO 200, overcast, handheld)
