Hand Held in Manual with 50mm f1.8 reversed (couldn't get the shot I wanted with my camera on a tripod)

"Involucre" is the green cup located between the stem and the underside of a flower head.

If it were advanced editing I would have taken out the light on the stem.

p.s. I love Ursula's floral macro work.. I hope one day to capture images as beautiful as hers.

I loved this in voting, and also thought of both Dax- and Ursula.... you've done a wonderful job of capturing the style you were after. Add to that the fact that you've done it with a reversed 50mm and not the 105mm on your wish list, and I'm even more impressed. Congrats on your top ten, and keep up the great work! :)

This is such a stuning image. It reminded me of Ursula's work when I saw it in voting. Congrats on top 10, Dana.

Stunningly beautiful (is this by Dax?), I really love the combination of sharp detail together with lots of smooth, out-of-focus areas and a nice graininess too. And lighting is lovely, so subtle, so perfect.

This is a 10 for me. The DOF is superb. Love it.

I really liked this one when viewing the thumbs, but the noise killed it for me on the full size.

Nice pic, realy like the perspective and use of shallow DOF. Too bad the bokeh seems so noisy.

All I can say is WOW. I just finished voting and had to come back to this one to say that it is my choice for a blue ribbon. Good luck, I hope you win.
