HDR Macro ????
Posted By: Bramela, 04-04-2008, 10:49 PM

My blue bottle gave a bit of interest, so as I decided at the same time to have a dabble with an HDR Macro shot, this may create a bit of interest. Didnt think I would get much of a result however.........

I like it, Bruce. The colour is great with the stamen off centre. A lot of beauty with your composition.

Great stuff Bruce. The HDR effect is nice and subtle (not overly tone-mapped like so many). It really brought the colours out. I'm impressed with your technique as well. The image is very sharp and that couldn't have been easy at such close distances and tight focus. OOF areas look great as well. Well Done!! Always like your flower shots.

That is beautiful. The Hdr really worked nicely on it. I'd never have thought of it.

Well done Bruce - nice composition - looks very natural and must be what a bee sees when he gets close

Nice work Bruce ... lighting is great in this.
It subtly highlights the OOF background ... which has really nice pastel colours in it.
I'd be proud to take a shot like that.

Thanks a lot for your comments guys, yes I was pleased with the result myself. Works sometimes, eh? I feel that is what our hobby, passion, is all about. Trying and hoping among all the shots we can come up with one which is the perfect shot. I am still aiming for that.
What a great hobby, I just think its great.

Really nice Bruce - the sort of thing I try to get with macro but never seem to be able to.

It's sooooooo nice to see a macro shot that has more than the .0592inch of DoF I'm not a fan of teeny tiny DoF where half the object of interest is soft.

This is an excellent shot in and of itself. That's it's HDR makes it even better IMHO. Great composition, wonderful colours and the little sparkly bits on the petals really makes it pop
