Abstract macros

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Kevin Scott, Jul 4, 2005.

  1. Continuing to learn my new 60mm micro lens, I spent part of yesterday with a bunch of flowers. ;) 

    Please let me know what you think.

    I'm having fun playing around but not sure I'm doing macro properly, if there is such a thing. Thanks for any feedback.
     
  2. Not sure? Well, they look awesome to me! The first one especially is a killer shot! :shock: :shock:

    I like them both. Abstracts , Patterns , Colors , Forms etc... I really like all that kinda stuff.

    Not "abstract" in my book, but nice nevertheless :) 
     
  6. Kevin, I'm not sure you can call these abstracts, but I'll tell you one thing. I agree with you. That first one is a killer macro shot.

  7. Hi Kevin,

    Very nice abstract indeed! I like the saturated colour of the daisy.

    Looks like macro in my book as I can't do macro properly either... ;-)

    Regards,

  8. I very much like the first one, it reminds me of the film with Eddie Murphy I think it was in Nepal where he has to step on some post to reach the other side of a room.
     
  9. Wow! Came back after a few hours and guess I had some visitors! ;) 

    Well, I guess they aren't really abstract in the true sense of the word but very different for me nonetheless. I really appreciate all the kind words from everybody. The gardens that these came from were overwhelming in every sense of the word for someone who likes flowers. I can't wait to go back and shoot some more there.

    Thanks again for looking! :D

    Excellent shots Kevin. I take it that you are liking the 60 micro?
     
  11. Lovin' it! :lol: Still getting comfortable with it and deciding when to use an appropriate aperture for desired effect. Thank God there's plenty of material around to practice on! ;) 
     
  12. Truly impressive. The first one is a mind-blower!
