Just to prove that my macro work doesn't only consist of BEMs and Flies
This is an attempt to create a more artistic image from a detailed shot of the seed head of a Clematis Montana. Let me know what you think, is there any mileage in this sort of shot?
There's mileage in it for me Brian. I think this is a great shot and really like the composition and colour.
I agree, lovely shot. Really good colour & good dof.
Yes Brian, has come out well, keep it up hope to see more in the future.
I agree, lovely shot - strong lines, subtle colours.
Thanks for your feedback John, Ben, Roger & Michael. (Welcome to epz Michael, look forward to seeing a lot more of your work).
Absolutely superb, Brian, more please, click
Definitely mileage Brian, very soft and subtle a bit like my attempt with the Iris. I think this works better.
Makes a fascinating and beautiful abstract image. This sort of image is one of the reasons I want to get into macro work myself. Well done Brian.
Smashing, I thought it was maybe glass from the thumbnail. This shot conjures up ice, water, glass, clouds, feathers, fountains... gets the imagination going
click from me.
I love it, looks superb to me.
Great abstract and macro. Love the curved sweeping lines and the soft subdued colour
Lovely abstract, well done..
I love abstract and this is a good example - strong lines and colours.
Wow - lots of positive responses - thanks all. I'll have a go at developing this sort of idea then
Such a beautiful picture!! Miles and miles of mileage!! I would have wondered what it was without the description. congratulations.
I love this Brian, it's a very beautiful image with lovely subtle colours, beautifully composed, brilliantly done, more please.
Thanks Linda & Mary. I'm glad you & others saw the possibilities in this image. Its too easy to stick with what you know will work, but when you try something different it can be worrying!
Fabulous Brian, definitely mileage in it I think, I thought it was a feather but it's even better now I know it's a flower.
Thanks Anne, welcome support from someone who is so good at flower abstracts
Well done Brian,very artistic,i like it.
This is really a greta shot...excellent effects....Pleasent image. Click
Jaime & Andy - thanks for taking time to look and comment
Perfect detail, shadows and tonal range,
Really nice, at first I thought it was watter!
Thanks for this shot,
Thanks for commenting Mark & Stef
'Is there any mileage in this shot'. I think the answer is above, it gets my vote.
Thanks Brad - I can see some more developments on this in future,
I love this - beautiful soft colours and excellent composition make for a superb image.
Although abstract it has a form and structure which forms an ordered composition together with a harmonising colour palette - so yes definate mileage Brian - steve
Very disappointed in you, I clicked it before I realized it was a flower, A FLOWER! Brian 1208!
Being you, I was positive it was a fantastic macro of a gnats eyelashes.
Kathy, Steve and Patricia - thanks for taking time to comment (and so positively
Patricia, I was afraid I may have offended you - sorry, the gnats wouldn't pose as their mascara had run - LOL
Miles of smiles in this shot, Brian
Such a beautiful colour and texture - takes a while to realise that it's sooooo tiny.
Matt :clickety click:
Wow, beautiful Brian.
Matt, Richard - thanks again
Brian - I missed this one. What a gorgeous shot. Its really kind on the eye and the colours are fantastic.
Looks like I missed it too Brian! Sorry about that! )
All been said already!
Ian, so much to see I'm grateful you found time to drop in
U are really "king of macro"....u have now even conquered the abstract shots! love this one. big click! =)
no idea how i missed this brian. this is totally gorgeous. very creative and so well composed.
Thanks sze & niamh, glad you liked this one
Missed when first posted (so many images so little time). A super capture and a superb image, well done, I love it.
Cheers Brian - you are right, and so much of it is good work being posted these days,
Beautiful shot. How did you use the reversed lens?
Thanks for commenting Alan. You can get a simple male:male converter which screws in to the end of the main lens. The reversed lens then screws into the converter. That's all there is to it. You need to use fast lenses for the best results otherwise you lose too much light. You have to use manual focus as well but, on the 300D, the auto-exposure works OK.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the info Brian. I never knew such a thing existed!
Congratulations!!! It's a great shot. Beautiful soft colours
Thanks Pip, just spotted your comment
