Apple Blossom Macro


More fruit blossoms!  This is an apple blossom from our Fuji apple tree.  I shot this with my 100mm lens and it was hand held.  Settings were: f/5, 1/1000 sec., ISO 100.  Just adjusted levels and added a round of Topaz Detail.  Hope you are having a great weekend!


Reflecting The World Outside

Tiny droplet on an apple in my backyard.  Photo was cropped tight, processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels, high pass filter and Topaz DeNoise.  I used the rectangular marquee and radial blur for the frame.   Hardest part of this was waiting for the tree to stop dripping so I could get a shot!!

Camera settings: Canon T1i, F/5, 1/400 sec., ISO 800, focal length 100 mm.  No flash.
