callalily

My wife has this callalily in a planter in front of our house.  I love the colors, so I went a little extreme on the macro.  I like how the pistil is peaking out of the center and the little purple dots that merge to form a solid color.


Canon EF 100mm f2.8 USM Macro lens
Exposure 1/250 sec @ f5.0
ISO 200
The only adjustment I made was to increase the clarity


A closer shot. I really didn't go nuts on the saturation.  As a matter of fact, I didn't touch saturation at all.  I adjusted the white balance and increased the clarity, that's all.

Probably as close as poetry ever allows to be taken a picture of.

A wonderful Sunday for you.

Love the last one. You can tell you didn't saturate it. It looks so beautifully natural!

Your photos are super. And I love your camera shot details. I have to confess I do not know how to do macro with my camera (Cannon G70) because I have lost the instructions!
