Mark,
Nice shots! The second one is excellent. However, the third one puts the flower in perspective and I like the composition. Also nice and sharp. Now if that doggone open flower had been on the left leading into the pic, I would print and frame it!!
Shooting info?

Thanks for the comments everyone. I like the second and third the best myself. Jerry you're right about the blossom in the third I just couldn't figure out how to frame it on the left side of the picture. So I decided to let it lead you out of the picture instead. Well, it was a nice experiment.

I used the curve posted on dpreview by Andrew Raszekski in this thread:

It took a bit of playing around with exposure compensation but anywhere between -1/3 to -1 worked great. These pictures were sharpened just a tad, resized and posted. I'm really pleased with the curve so far.

And a successful experiment it was, Mark. Good work on this series. Hope to get there some day.

Mark,

I especially like #2 and #3. The detail and three-dimensional quality of the images is awesome. Excellent results from that curve too!
