Just attempting some close up work last night with my home made macro box!
It's tricky to get the lighting right so I had a bit of processing to do on this one.
I've had some excellent advice from EPZ members, David and Jenni, which I'm going to study and, hopefully, improve!
I hope I haven't 'over-egged' the yellow on this image, so to speak!Blush
Many appreciative thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Squirrel at Himley 2' upload.
Particular thanks to Trish for her very generous User Award!Smile

How do you make a macro box? Lovely image, the daff stands out so well against the dark background and it's pretty crisp.
