  4. Love the colors in the abstract macro flower Mike. You are certainly one of a very few that convinced me to delve deeper into the world of Digital SLR. I thank you Sir for the inspiration.

  10. My eye is drawn to both sides of the photograph and my brain can’t decide which one it likes best; which leaves me riveted. Lovely work.

  19. Is the blur added afterwards or did you get lucky and have a great location to keep the colors so smooth and silky looking?

    Comment by Mark Aplet | March 28, 2006

  27. Hi, i’m kind of new to your site..
    Beautifull picture ! It looks so abstract and clean, that’s how nature pics should be

    Comment by steefje | March 31, 2006

  28. Mark, … the 50mm reverse provides a very shallow depth, therefore you almost always can get that very soft and blurred look, which is something that I really like in this type of macro shooting.

    Thanks again everyone for visiting!
    (man, ….. I gotta head out that door!) :)
