I agree, a bit more depth of field would have improved the pic. Maybe just a few f stops less, to f11 or f13. I use these f stops a lot for my jewelery shots, which are all 90mm macro, and it tends to give a nice amount of depth. All the same, the subject area that is in focus is pin sharp and has a lot of detail. I love the velvety look to the water as well, and the way the flowers almost bend it. the lack of colour in the water also helps the flowers stand out. Very nice.
This is really nice... The colors are so vibrant and the flowers so delicate. I like that the one flower is almost see-through and you can see an edge of the other flower. The water is a good touch, adding an extra gleam here and there. It's a very good macro, you can see a lot of good details without blur at all. Good job
What I most like about this picture, and what attracted me the most into full-view it was its peculiar colours and that strange water (is it really water??? ). It puzzled me. Then, the contrasts between those colours, and the composition of the flowers: not too many, not too less… well, what can I say? Great work! keep up!
Thanks, yeah that is water. I poured it into a very shallow black container, which made the water look less transparent and because the flowers were very small water's surface tension can be seen clearly, that's why it bends the way it does. Hope this clears things up. Thanks for the comment.
Thanks, the flowers are very small so that's why the water bends that way and I put them in a small contaner outside which was really shallow so the liquid lost its transparentness Thanks for the comment.
Love the shadows, and the way you got the water(?) to not be transparent. However you got the flowers to dimple the surface that they are resting on without being transparet is awesome. I'm with the first poster though, a little more DOF would be yummy.
