    Gentle bump before it drops off page 1. Apologies if there was a reason for the lack of comments after 16 views.

    those are VERY nice

    thanks for sharing
     
  5. Great closeups! I love the colors. Thanks for sharing.
     
  6. I like what you have done, great colors and close up and personel, And that you left the tail so you can see there is more then just eye's and wings.
    Wish I knew the EXIF on it, hope you will post more.
     
  7. Very impressive!! These are some of the sharpest dragons shots I have seen. What lens did you use and what is the data???

    The only critique I can give is that I wish they have been shot by me. Excellent. Magnificent eyes.

    Thanks very much everyone, the feedback is really appreciated. I've only had my D300 for 3 months now, so I'm trying to improve as much as possible.

    Sorry about the EXIF info, it does seem to be working on my Mac though. These were both shot handheld with a Sigma 105mm f2.8 DG Macro, also used a diffused SB800 mounted on the hotshoe.

    It certainly is, this one just did not want to move, no matter how close I got. It even allowed to to move the flower stem a little to get the desired angle. :smile:
