I love taking macro images with my Canon 180mm macro lens, especially if they turn out like this.

This is a close-up of a rose petal, with a water droplet on the very edge of the petal. I love the rich ruby color, and hope you so as well.

Sorry this one just doesn't do anything for me.

You know, your downfall is the fact that I gave this a second look. Right at first I was blown away, then when I came in for the all-over closer look, I found it...the one thing that jumps out at me and now is all I can see.

Your reflection in the "pearl"

Way too much detail lost here due to Filtering and Cropping.
