Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Date: Jul 2, 2006

No tripod and shallow dof don't work very well specially if you have to be on your toe to reach the flower. took about 40 pictures hoping to get the right focus point.

this is very similar to one of doctornick's shots - and both of them are terrific!

Worthy of a ribbon.

Congrats on this fine abstract. The shallow DOF works so well because of the warm gradations or oragne and red in the background. Great composition as well.

Unreal. I thought this would also ribbon. It looks like something outer this world.

The reds and yellows... This is on fire :) another image which does wonders with a shallow DOF *bump*

Superb! My favorite in the challenge. I love the orange and red tones. You did a nice job keeping the little fuzzy guys sharp while letting the rest of the photo blur. :) Adding to my favorites.

Technically well done! Nice shallow DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2006 04:20:29 AM
this is my favourite from the challenge, from the moment I saw it. The very shallow DoF is stunning and you've managed to focus at the top part. the different orange colors are fantastic.

great job, one tip: make a print available ;-)

Very different and very good. I like the focal point and the shades of warm colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 07:52:36 PM
great tone, the highlighting on the "hairs" makes it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

lovely detail and colours
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 08:22:48 PM
9 - Oh.. wow. I wish this was bigger. Not sure on the frame so big but... does work well. ... very nice - want to say even more detail on that one stigma, but it is likely there - just the size (restrictions) doesn't do this justice. Color(s) - very nice.

I like everything about this gorgeous abstract except the border. It's overwhelmingly wide. I'd prefer either no border, or a much narrower one. This one seems to intrude upon the pic.

07/04/2006 03:47:03 PM
very very nice! the dof works perfectly here.

Too much red/orange, doesn't offer enough contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 04:48:36 AM
This is truly beautiful. Great DOF and I love the softness. It almost looks like a gorgeous alien of some sort. LOL Good job. 9

i love the colours, very nice DOF. i wish the border was a bit thinner than this though.

One of the best so far. Great colors and the focus is spot on. This could definitely be a ribbon winner.
