Thank you Evelyn… you got me and my eye touch!
I like the subject of Nepenthes very much (and have taken many shots, most of which are not good enough to be shared) and find a lot to like in this image. The top-down perspective is pleasingly unusual and I know not easy to manage because of the lid, so we get a unique view of the trap softening off into oblivion for the hapless insect. Although I’m fully aware of the depth challenges posed by these flowers, I’m distracted by the softness of focus at the left and right edges of the peristome. I’m sympathetic because I work in hand-held mode almost exclusively, but I find myself wishing for just a little more depth of field in this capture. For me, the little technical focus details are keeping me from fully appreciating the larger picture, the beautiful sensuousness of these curves.
Thank you so much Celeste, again for this real comment.Yes i too took so many shots of htese plants and selected only very few to share. I am always captured by the combination of curves and textures of these plants, making them very sensual. As you say, the narrow focus is still disappointing on this one. This is my best one so far of the Nepenthes’ “eye”, but i’ll keep trying!
Yes, I can see it. “Feed me!” ; ) Wonderful macro.Cordially, Ellen
