Horned to me?

(horned in Italy means having an unfaithful wife!)

Finally getting a couple posted here. These are from May but I will try to take more today :).
I don't have a macro lens as yet, so not sure if that means they are still defined as macro, but I still enjoy taking them. Loving seeing everyone else's work too ! Will comment more later today ~:D

ETA: I've included a link now to what Caragana is, thanks Karen for the prompt ;)

I got another bee today, this one is a little bit bigger than a gnat, smaller than a fly. Who knew there were so many different bees? Anyway, I tried all the PP I know how to use, to adjust the hot oversaturated pink of the petals, can't do it. Any suggestions? I would be grateful. I've been experimenting with the different ways to meter the light, maybe that's how the petals got so pink.

Thanks for the comments!
OK, I used a hue/sat layer. But guess what, the culprit wasn't the magenta, it was the red. Then I added a BW layer on soft light. I wonder, is this any better?

Go and have fun with your macro or closeup shots.

Anything you think qualifies as a "closeup" is fine -- if people don't like it they can say so!

Not sure what two of the three are. But got different ones for today. I'm trying for 30 different Species one for each day of the month.

Well I finally had a little time to shoot. So, here is something a little different.

This is a strait up macro of some paint peeling off of a wooden frame.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_888125.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_888125.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This one is an 8 photo focus stack

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_888126.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_888126.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This one is actually 24 total photos. It is an 8 photo focus stack but at each focus point I took 3 photographs (0,-2,+2). First I stacked the 3 different sets of photos (0,-2,+2) then I took those 3 outputs and made them into an HDR.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_888127.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_888127.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

On another board (I am new to macro) I was asking if anyone had ever tried an HDR stack. I love HDR and just found out about focus stacking and was wondering if it was possible. This was my first attempt at focus stacking and I made some mistakes and did not get the entire photo in focus as I was planning. I am not sure about the HDR part either. Going to have to play around with it more as I get time.

Let me know what you think, I did not crop this at all and know that it could use a crop to get rid of the brown area at the top towards the left side.
