Hi there,

Grabbed this macro from my garden this morning 11th July 2008 - soon after this beauty opened up :)

Usual kit, Canon 40D, 100mm macro lens, ring-flash.

Greg

Nice flower. I think the photo would have benefited from a little underexposure. The detail in the white areas is pretty much gone.

It is also a bit more user-friendly if you post the photo in the thread with image tags around the URL.

Like this...

In the post box it should look like this:

[img]here%20the%20URL%20of%20your%20photo%20without%20leading%20or%20trailing%20spaces%20and%20ending%20in%20.jpg[/img]

Use the [Preview] button to check that it works and then post it with the [Submit] button.

BTW. Did you use a flash? I get the impression you did. I prefer available light over flash light most of the times.

Ben

Hi Ben,

Thank you for explaining how to make the image visible in the thread!! Very useful.
Yes I did use a ring-flash, on a very low setting. Natural light would not have been sufficient at f#20. It was still underexposed, I used the standard CS3 method to push the exposure up - maybe I overdid it!

Greg
