  • The Weekly Close Up ...19/2009 POST YOURS

    Welcome to the Weekly Closing Up, where the small comes to life.

    I have to tell you how impressed I have been, not only with the images but also the replies to each other. Everyone likes to have their images noticed and it makes you want to shoot more.

    So what have you for lil ol me?

    Lets see it. Tell us how you got it and if you cropped. List any techniques used that may help us improve.

    Lets do this

    Just a fly

    Not much in the yard this morning, luckily flies are always a dependable subject.

      Great image Jim.

      I may have something in the can from this morning. I'll look later as I have an errand to run right now.

        Thistles around here are dying off in the heat and as they do so they produce a wonderful range of colours and textures that I have tried to capture with my E3 and Yashica ML 55mm f2.8 Macro. All cropped but little else other than some shadow/highlight adjustment.

            Thank you Barr1e. I look forward to whats in the can.

            Nice series, like Barr1e, I especially like the first one. Until I scrolled down fully, I thought it was going to be a caterpillar.

              It's too embarrassing to say how many pix I took of the butterfly this morning. Each time I got near it moved into another position and would not keep still. Even the wind seemed to play its part in not getting that 'close up.

              Anyhow, two of one. Hand held.

                  That's a beautiful butterfly, the colors are wonderful.

                  I always shoot as I move in and if that's all I can get, at least I got the shots.

                            D--n, and I just deleted a photo of two Japanese Beetles "doin' the deed" because I didn't think that I would ever have a need for it. Bummer!

                              Dragonfly in the geranium ! E510 + Yashica ML 28mm f2.8. Just an experiment really. My new, old Yashica 28mm had an outing on the E510 today. I noticed this lovely little lens will focus down to 12 inches so gave it a try. Not a real macro lens but a nice close up one that seems plenty sharp and has lovely colour rendition and nice contrast. No cropping or other post processing. Pretty good for $20 I say.
