Dew Upon the Flower (Macro)

First ever attempt at macrophotography.

 

Was inspired by a fellow Cazillion at cazillo.com.

 

This was particularly difficult for me since I bought a reverse ring rather than a dedicated macro lens; so I did the focusing manually and trusted my eye (and failed a few times) in focusing since that green dot (on my Nikon D5000) won't signify whether I'm in focus or not.

 

For my first try, I wished I did better, but hey, it's a learning process =]
