I've been trying some close-up photography recently which I'm finding much harder than the usual landscape and architectural type photos that I normally produce.
Compositionally, this kind of photography doesn't come easily for me with but we all get lucky from time to time and here's one that I'm pleased with.
For those of you are who are interested in the technical side of things, the photo was taken using a Nikon 105mm f2.8VR Micro lens. It was photographed in RAW like all my shots and processed using 'Capture NX2' and Photoshop CS3 mainly adding extra contrast.
I've decided to enter the 'Cool Photoblogs' annual competition again this year. I'd really appreciate a vote from any of you who like my blog and who feel up to going through the registration process that is required in order to be able to vote: 2009 Photoblog Awards
