Thorns and the shadow of an orchid stalk
Lens: Sigma 28-0 macro Camera: K-30 


This is definitely not a masterpiece but I think the idea is neat enough to be retried in a more aesthetically pleasing way. I would be interested to read anyone's comment on how to improve it.

This was shot with a Sigma 28-80mm macro lens at 80mm and possibly extension tubes (I cannot remember whether this particular shot was take with or without them). I blew the background to clipped white because the original floor was also beige-ish, which I think detracted a lot from the thorns. Would like to hear your opinion on that, too.

Best regards,

Update: I just saw that the EXIF info is available for this shot, which means no extension tubes were used (min don't have any contacts at all).
