Brilliant - just look at the detail!
Ray: Surprising, sometimes, what you find when you get in close. Thanks, Chris.
Oooooooooooooooo...nice!
Ray: I am glad you like it, Bill.

Its designer stubble is gray, just like mine
Ray: Yeah...could be a self portrait of me...
and Ray showing off his photography skills! Super image, perfect in mono, and such incredible detail. (:o)
Ray: Thanks, Rosalyn. Normally I prefer colour, but this one seemed better in mono.

Ray Ray where do you get these ideas from. It's super!
Ray: Nothing is safe when I have a camera in my hands, Scarlet.
I'm speechless with awe at this shot.
Ray: Just a humble blade of grass, with a little bit of backlighting from my assistant...Mr Sun.
This is incredible Ray, you are forcing me to observe another fantastic world.
Ray: Thanks, Chad. The mini-worlds revealed by macro-photography are a constant source of wonder to me.

Wonderful close up
Ray: Thanks, Vintage. I am pleased you like it.
Great!! Lovely semi-backlit capture! Brings out the details really nice!!!
Ray: Thanks, Marion. It got my attention long before I thought to look at it through the viewfinder.

I never would have considered a B&W conversion, what an amazing result. Nice one Ray
Ray: I do a B&W on many images, Spark, just to see how they look.
All this on a stem of grass, amazing smile
Ray: Grass is wonderful stuff, Linda.
Now that is what I really call macro Ray but not with a proper macro lens I presume.
Ray: I shot is with the superb Canon 100mm f2.8 L macro, Brian...that's about as proper as macro lenses get. [grin]
Definitely in need of a shave! Interesting shot, Ray.
Ray: I have found a way to not shave AND not have a beard!
Brilliant! you've got to be using a dedicated macro lens to get so close in.
Ray: Thanks, Holly. On this occasion, I was using my Canon 100mm f2.8 L macro...it doesn't only do macro, but it is designed for that purpose.
Superb shot Ray..Such detail in grasses.
Ray: I love grasses, Ron.
More hair on that than on my head, can we do a transplant in 7 weeks?
Ray: I still have quite a lot of hair, Nigel, but this does look quite like my beard.

There you again, Ray, out-doing yourself! great shot!
Ray: The world of small is a fascinating place, Jennie.
looks like one of Victor's images ... superb bit of electron microspy Ray
Ray: Oooops! This is the second recent image that folks have told me is similar to a VZ one, Richard.

[grin]
perfect for B&W love it
Ray: One of the few pics where it is clear to me that B&W will work.
Wow, this is stunning. Such fine clarity and an awesome composition.
Ray: Just a little bit of backlighting made it work, I think. Thanks, Piyush.
Great in B & W !
