This shot is particularly dear to me for many reasons. Mainly because it was quite difficult to take it the way I wanted to. I often try to give a "painting-like" feeling to my shots working exclusively in camera, without adding PP and I think this is my best result so far.
It is a 1:1 macro taken with my EOS500D and my best lens, the mighty (for my budget) Canon EF 100mm L IS USM, at 1/80 sec f/3.5, ISO 100, with my homemade flash diffuser put on a 270 EX.
This is a repost that I originally captured in april 2010.
