Natural close-ups
Posted By: gawan, 04-18-2008, 02:34 PM

I like shooting close - this is an addition to my earlier "miniature landscapes" series. Which one do you prefer?

I really like the first one, but it might help it if you crop a little off the bottom to focus the attention more on the green.

I like the colours and textures of 1 and 2 especially Georg. I think 1 is my favourite.

Thanks for the suggestion, lets try it:



I think I lost some sharpness in the process, but you'll get the idea...

Thanks Dave, I think you grasped something that I did too, I like watching that tree bark...

I like the 1st and 3rd, with the edit on the 1st. I try to get similar pictures with an old 50 M macro. I posted this one this week in the POW

Hi gawan, I like the color and detail on the first one a lot. The way the sharp textures fade into the OOF area. I played with it a bit on a crop and ended up with an even tighter crop than yours...


Not sure it helps at all...

Looking at it here it does not help... too tight I am afraid

I think you tried the same as I did before ending to my second version, it seems to be a question of balance.

Thanks for the comment!

There's something about your second picture that speaks to me... It gets my vote.
