I like this, it's nice and sharp and very well lit - the combination has worked well I think. It doesn't seem to have suffered from the high ISO - good camera! I like the backgroound, it's completely unobtrusive yet with some interest and adding balance to the picture.   Posted: 11/09/2020 13:27:43

Technically, this is perfect to me. The simplicity works really well for this. It's a wonderful macro image with beautiful capture of the details.   Posted: 11/10/2020 10:56:15

Spot on! The details are tack sharp. Colors and composition are perfect. It must be difficult to capture the fine hair around the subject.   Posted: 11/12/2020 16:02:26

Really nice image all around - composition, colors, clarity. I have a suggestion and a question - the suggestion is to darken the lower right corner, and the question is do you use auto, or manual, focusing?   Posted: 11/18/2020 14:33:28

hanks Bill for the comment. Your suggestion well taken, but this kind of macros I treat as nature photos hence not post process anything than acceptable in Nature category.

I use manual focusing for 90% of my macros.   Posted: 11/20/2020 10:09:09

Excellent macro capture. The detail is precisely where it needs to be and your background bokeh sets it off nicely.

Did you shoot this handheld or on a tripod? Inquiring minds want to know all the details! d;¬{D   Posted: 11/19/2020 17:47:20
