Bought a small pot of flowering snowdrops this morning as have none in my garden and I so wanted to try and photograph the beauty of them. I have seen some beautiful images of snowdrops coming through the feed bars and so wanted to have a try and see what I could create.
So as its pouring with rain and Im at home thought have another go with extension tubes.
used the 12mm as so grey and little light even on the windowsil las it is pouring with rain

Nikon D90 18-105 vr lens 12mm extension tube
Exps 1/640 sec
Hand held, Manual focus, Poor indoor light.
Levels worked in Photshop Cs3 and slight crop, layer added and blended in normal mode until i liked the feel of it then flattened and added into Efex pro 3 colour. Lighten and darken added to highlight the middle and then Tonal contrast that lifted the texture of the petals.
Image my own texture by Lesley Nicoles washed sky free down load from flickr.
Any comments on how I can improve this please let me know it is a area I am learning about.
