    Great DOF and superb color!
    Certainly different and a step otuside of what we’ve come to expect from you Lee… Not that that’s a bad thing… I think It’s fantastic!
    Your skill and flair as an artist can only be fully tested when trying to succeeed outside the “square”.
    …And succeed you have. This is quite beautiful. Congrats Lee!! :D

    Perfect focus, I like the depth on the spikes and the coloring of the tip perfects it.

    Great shot

    Great idea Lee. Image looks great. I have never heard of the reverse lens trick but it makes sense. I have been using macro extension tubes and the seem to work well too.

    Thanks so much you guys!!!

    I like to mix it up a bit Paul!! :)

    It was very odd Brett but all you do is spin the lens around and move in and out till you get it!
