Comparison (2 MACROS)

When editing my photographs yesterday I noticed two images, one of the entire flower, and the other, a closeup of the inner part of this flower. To make absolute sure both images were of the same flower, I followed the lines on each photo. Why?

I did not take these photographs consciously with the thought, “OH, I want to show YOU how close I get with my macro”. It wasn’t anything like that. I just was in my zone, happily shooting and it wasn’t until I was in PS looking at my images that I noticed what I am about to show you.

Keep in mind, these are two separate images of the same flower. The only editing done was sharpening and resizing. NO cropping was done on either one. I was in error a few posts back stating that I cropped and sharpened my photos. What I meant was resizing NOT cropping, for I do very little of cropping.

Now for these photos I am about to show. Image number one is of the entire flower. Image number two is of the same flower but shooting an extremely closeup of the inner chamber of the same flower. I am doing this to give YOU an idea how small of an area I sometimes shoot. Amazing? I am amazed. So I know YOU will. ENJOY!!

    1. I really wanted you to SEE how close I get. When I present a macro without comparison, sometimes it flies over one’s head how close is close I can and do get. (smile) Thank you! Love, Amy

  2. The macro world is really amazing, right?

    I used to move around in our backyard garden and crawl through the bushes to catch a small flower, a caterpillar or a butter fly.

    The reward was always a sharp image.

    Most of times, we misses the beauty hidden right in front of us.

    It’s always great to see the world with a different perceptive πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Sreejith! Yes, I have been crawling in the mud and loving it! [GRIN] Usually the greatest treasures are right under our noses. We just don’t see them. I am LOVING my macro. Can you tell? (smile) Love, Amy

    1. Yes, Anarette, I am using the 60mm only for my macro. When I photograph an entire flower, I use my zoom lens. I am also using a Canon 50D camera. I would highly recommend the 60mm lens. I am having so much success with it, as you can see. Let me know what you decide. (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. Any questions, just ask, OK? I know Canon has one other Macro, but the reviews on the one I chose were actually better. And I can attest, the results I am getting are just blowing me away. (((HUGS))), Amy

      4. Oh, Sue, you have no idea how I treasure your words. I had quite the challenging week last night with someone NOT believing who I am and what I stand for. How anyone cannot, is beyond me. It was very evident this person does not read my work, nor comes to my blog. The only reason this person came was due to my “sensual post”. But back and forth the conversation went until finally I almost gave up. It was then this person pointed out something that I had written unintentionally …. fast typing syndrome … and it was taken personally as I was demeaning this person. Anyways … long story short …. BLESS YOU for saying the words you just did to me. They brought solace to my Heart. (((HUGS))) Amy

      5. So many have a narrow View on LOVE!.. Love encompasses all.. Its we who have put it into darkened corners and made it viewed the way many whose views are narrow .. We who see nature at work see love-making every day! πŸ™‚ haha… I feel sorry for those trapped within their boxes.. πŸ™‚ …. But to all be the same would lead for a boring world.. So there has to be the shadows in order for us see the Light.. KEEP SHINING IT bright Sister… I know where your heart is…
        Love Sue xoxox

      6. BINGO! I am an artist so I know if there were no shadow, there would be no definition, no clarity, no FORM. So the darkness is NOT a bad thing. It helps to define who and what we are. There is no bad or good. It is just IS. YOU keep shining as well. LOVED you newest post!! xx Amy

  3. These pictures on my opinion are not subjects for comparison. Both of them are beautiful and showing differently the same flower. It depends what somebody wants too see at the moment.Nicely done.
