Great light on Manhattan in the morning. Some vertical distortion from the wide angle lens but made the choice to capture as much of the cityscape as I could.
Not every macro image needs to be abstract. Let the shallow focus do the work and show off the subject when possible.
When I first set out to shoot macros the goal was to create strong color images. Wish the focus was sharp on the petal on the left but getting closer to the types of images that inspired me to experiment.
The crowd at the base gives perspective to our Country's "welcome sign". I enjoyed seeing Statue of Liberty from the New York harbor.
A little too late in the morning, the buildings are backlit and a little hazy. Enough iconic architecture to be worthy of keeping but not one of my best images.
Azalea at Carolina Native Nursery in Burnsville, NC. This image works as a square crop to off center the strong center focus. Other than that I liked the detail.
This shot caught my attention because of the texture on the leaves and the backlit glow of the flower. Azalea at Carolina Native Nursery.
Chrysler Building trio, one from the Empire State Building and two others from the Hudson River. The World's Tallest Building for 11 months before being upstaged by the Empire State Building in 1931.
A couple shots of the Brooklyn Bridge, originally opened in 1883. Spans the East River to connect to Manhattan.
