    This is beautiful. The level of detail perspective in this shot makes it fun to stare at. Nice work!

  3. Velvia produces beautiful color! I have never seen an azalea up this close and you did a great job.

    • Thanks. Velvia is a wonderful film – if the conditions are right. If the light isn’t right or the colors are too strong, look out.

    This is one of the BEST macro flower images I have seen in a very long time.

    It’s perfect, exact focus on the delicate stamen, vibrant pink petals juxtaposed near green leaves. Very, very well done!

    Great color. I shot a few azaleas today, too. A good day for flowers-sunny and in the 70s. Finally! 🙂

    • You still have azaleas? I actually took this a couple of weeks ago – before the rains came and obliterated all things azalean.

  7. Perfection.

  8. Who knew an azalea could communicate feeling?! It’s delicate and fragile and perfect in every way.

    • Thanks. Too bad azaleas don’t last very long. 😦
