Flower and fisheye

Just for fun doing proxy with a Q and fisheye lens. Yes, I know, it's not really a standard macro setup... The harsh midday sunlight produced very strong contrast and colors.

Wow, great shot! Very interesting angle, were you almost touching the plant?
And the contrast is often a problem on sunny days with flower photography. I think you controlled it very well, though.

Thanks! The front of the lens was about 2cm from the flower's center.

It may not be a "standard" macro setup but it works well. Well controlled
