Challenge: Multiple Light Sources (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Location: Houston, TX
Date: May 22, 2004
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/125 sec
Date Uploaded: May 23, 2004

This picture was taken using the EF 100mm f/2.8 macro USM lens and the Canon MT-24EX flash. The scene was backlit by the sun to give the lighting in the background. One flash head was used to illuminate the butterfly and the other was held in my hand to illuminate the leaves in the foreground. As far as post processing I did a slight crop, upped the contrast a bit and a light USM though it really didnít need it.

This looks like there is a large area that was Photoshopped, in front of the butterfly. In any event I find the foggy looking area to look unnatural.

Great shot! Very nice focus and DOF. The lighting is fantastic as well. (I'll take your word for there being multiple sources, though I don't think it is "obvious") This is one of my favorites from this challenge.

Cool macro, 9

Wonderful macro - great sense of the fragility of the wings here, and the curl of its proboscis (sp?) . Great detail, good light. More than one source? It isn't clear, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt I suppose.

I really think that this is a nice picture, technically of a high standard, but what made you choose this subject for this challenge??

The sharpness and detail is absolutely amazing in this image. Great use of depth of field to emphasize the subject.

Macro shots always amaze me. You have very good depth of field and light together. Impressive!
