The Edge

By ColouredImages    
Spent a good few hours today making the most of the flowers I bought for my pupil yesterday.

A gerbera with a drop clinging on to the edge of the petal

This is stunning and it glows from within. Good selective focus on the front petals and on the droplet - the jewel.

Do you know Kathleen Clemons' work, Mike? Much of her work is done with Lensbaby.

I took a floral class from her last year, and I worked on several images similar to this, but the droplet is difficult to get just right, clear, sharp and with no blown areas. I think you've achieved that to perfection here.

Superb macro shot, love that colour well composed with a touch of droplet - the jewel on the crown.
