This was taken yesterday on a rose bud in the garden. I used a 105mm lens plus 20mm extension tube 1/125 at f16; tripod mounted with off-camera flash.
I think I need to diffuse the flash bit more as it is a bit harsh. Any comments as to how to make it better would be gratefully received.
In Light room I rotated the shot and cropped it a bit. In CS3 I re-sized and used USM at 97% setting
