Yikes! Nasty Sad

Wonderful composition you've got here, Colleen, and of course I just love the background. Such a surreal blur and you can make out the shapes too. Perfect Smile

Absolutely beautiful Colleen - this approach to macro is quite different to
our macro mentor in our club who stacks images for sharpness front to back.
This is much more subtle and a wonderful result.

Kate...those techniques are way beyond me....I do not have a clue about Photoshop or Lightroom, my images are straight from the camera, I use Picasa for straightening, cropping and framing....a novice at anything technical...that is why I said yesterday that I do not want to do true macro photography , prefer my dreamy images....
