Withered Petals - Day 86 (1)

Macro photographing is exiting. Grab your camera - mount a macro lens and start looking for scenes in your own garden. I needed to focus on small details after attenting a full day M&A seminar :-)


I found those withered petals and photographed them using my Nikon D300 with a AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8. The camera was on a tripod and I used MirrorUp and a Nikon MC-36 cable release to avoid any vibrations. It is still impressive what a 12MP camera can do in terms of sharpness, tonality and details. Both photos where post processed in LR4 and a bit of sharpness was applied also.
