Macro Challenge


A month or two ago I joined a group on Flickr called Macro Mondays.  They have a weekly theme-based challenge and the members shoot a macro photo based on the theme.  I really liked this one that I created for last Monday's challenge.   The theme was "Divided".  I photographed this divided flower on a small mirror and used some orange netting to create that mottled background.


A few weeks ago the subject was "Still Life" so I created this little scene using a tiny candelabra and some tiny books.  I've enjoyed challenging myself to come up with something for each theme.

Love the divided flower! Very creative. It looks like a windstorm is tearing it apart...

Really like that flower.

Absolutely stunning first photo. The mirror gave the final photo an appearance of petals flowing in the air.

You are so very creative! These are both terrific compositions. Saw a photo of a really scary dust storm coming over Phoenix. Hope you survived OK!

I like them both, with a slight preference for the first one!

Your imagination is second to none to come up with these ideas. Very nice.
