Another shot from my attempts at macro at the weekend. I wasn't too keen on this one when I first looked at them, but the more I look at it, the happier I am with it. I'm pleased at the level of detail I've managed to get in the petals. The flowers were set up on our balcony in fairly bright sunshine with no additional lighting - with hindsight a light to the right hand side and slightly above might have brough out even more detail - one to consider trying next time! The camera was mounted on the tripod and the shots were taken using three different lenses - the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8m the Canon 50mm f1.8, and the Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 APO DG Macro.
