Magenta Zinnia by KeldBach Magenta Zinnia by KeldBach
A 'portrait' of one of my assorted summer flowers this year. I think it's a Zinnia elegans but can't be too sure since they come in many different shapes and colours. See also:

Good God.  I have similar photos but your are so much better I want to cry! For real.  Granted, your probably not shooting with your cell phone like I am.  What kind of camera/lens are you using?  What software do you use for editing?  I bought a Canon only to find out its all about the lens and the one I want is a macro at $2,700!  I'm sticking with the challenge of shooting the best photos I can with my phone, until that kind of change rolls around.

Thanks very much for your kind words. And yes, you'll need a macro lens for this kind of shot. I used Nikon's 105mm + extension tube for this one. After shooting, I used Photomatix for focus stacking and Photoshop for the final editing.

Just keep shooting - you get excellent results with your cell phone :D

I like the way the light makes the pink "glow"....it looks like evening sun. (or morning?) I wish I could find zinnias this nice.   ^^;
