Hi!
Today I managed to go for a short walk and found quite a few cute, little green frogs in one of the ponds and some beautiful water lillies.

I like #1 best. the size of the frog vs the size of the flower makes the would seem so big.

Lovely shots. Is the DoF in shot 2/ natural or the result of post-processing. Unfortunately most images that come from Flickr these days seem to have the EXIF data disabled so I can't see the f-number used. :evil:

Bob.

It looks PP because there is a line that goes from in focus pretty well to out of focus badly.

Hi ,
I used Lightroom for this lot. I sharpened them all and did some cropping. I think the second one got a little bit more saturation. As I am not at home now, I cannot check exact PP params.

Bob, there was no mucking around with DOF. I think, I must have exported these jpgs without EXIF, perhaps?

Hi csnaus! I also found all three nice.

1 had a nice 'scale' although I didn't notice the frog at first because it was camouflaged :lol:

2 had a very nice DOF and I think the composition was good too.

3 had very vibrant colours! Shot only improved by the dew drops :)

Yep second one is cool would have liked to see a bit more of DOF tho on that one, so the body would have been vise able so to speak!

But some very stunning macro work right here, well done

Hi Csnaus,

I was wondering if you could tell me what lens you used for each and roughly the distance from you to the subject. I'm currently trying to figure out which lens to get for macro work and i really like your pics here. I love the colours in #3.

Shane

Hi Shane

All pictures were taken with Canon 100mm macro lens. As to the distance... hmmm... I really cannot remember but I guess the distance was no more than 1m.
