Great day, new toy came, Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro lens. Have been looking at them for a while, thought I would start today with a close-up, messing with settings, iso and lighting. Take it slow and work up to seeing what the world of close-up and macro has to offer.
Have had alot of fun with this today. Hope you enjoy................

Sharp detail, Paul. Interesting composition, and the rose would have looked tremendous on its own as well.

Strikingly beautiful, I love the stark contrast between the rough and destructive pebble and the soft and delicate Rose, simply a piece of photographic genius.
