A marigold in my garden, the first rays of light on this morning

peeked thru the trees and gave luminance to the little bloom.

Very beautiful indeed. I hope other aspiring macro-ists are looking at this. Notice that this isn't looking straight down on the full flower centered in the frame with an overwhelmingly cluttered background in equally sharp focus?

Beautiful colors and I love the composition. Were you intentionally focusing on the flower petal edges instead of the pistils? (or is it stamen? - biology was a long time ago). My eye was drawn to the pistils but it seems like they're not in as sharp focus as the petals.


BTW, I really like "Dew Drops" also!

Wow! Nice flower macro! I liked the colours and the crispness of the petals. The placement of the flower is perfect. Good use of DOF and blurred background, but perhaps a little bit more DOF to help keep the whole thing in focus.
