I have been wanting to try some Macro (Or close up) photography, lacking a macro lens I just decided to get as close as I could and crop a little bit. I liked this one the best of the 25 or so shots I took, for some reason the red ones just didn't look all that good. sigh.....
Anyway this was taken with my k 135mm f2.5 at f4 and 2sec shutter (to allow me time to fire my flash by hand) with hand held/triggered flash. I have cropped a bit from the original. What do you think?
Thought it would be fun to do a Black and White conversion as well.
