Love the colours here, Ray. Great macro!
Ray: I am pleased you like it, Karen, even though I didn't quite get focus right.

abstract explosion of seeds. But I don't think that you should be talking about grass, especially where you come from! lol. mal
Ray: These little things are not easy to photograph, and I didn't quite get the technique right yet.
In Thailand the scene is much more about amphetamines than weed, mal...a serious problem here like everywhere else, it seems. When the cops do a drug bust, they seem to grab millions of tablets.
For me...don't have time for that scene, as I am in full-time training to be a world-class lover. [grin]
Thanks for your comment.

Excellent choice of DOF and I like the diagonal stem. It looks like the highlights may be a little harsh and there are halos around some of the buds. Processing or unusual light conditions? This technical stuff doesn't take away the fact that this is a beautiful shot.
Ray: Hi Martin. Turns out this stuff is very difficult to photograph for a learner like me. The light is a bit challenging down there, and the stuff is so small it is hard to get focus right.
I think you caught me out, trying too hard to correct some problem in the picture.
Thanks for your kind and constructive comment.

Ray! Those sweet little teensy tiny seeds of grass look as if they are popping out of my screen. The colors are so beautiful. And i know how small these are because I have some photographs I took of them too. Yours is so much better though. Next time I give it a go, I will think of the way you framed it and approach the photo a little differently. Thanks Ray!
Ray: Thanks, Kathryn. I really like the colours and patterns, but am a little disappointed with focus...I am going to make another attempt at getting a good shot. It is seriously pretty stuff...but tiny!
Wonderful and artistic shot Ray ! I like it very much !!
Ray: Don't know why, but I like photographing the flowers of grasses.
