I had a day off so I called a fellow Lensbaby user and we took a trip down to Callaway Gardens south of Atlanta. The butterfly house was still a little too cool for the critters to fly about, and the Amaryllis had not opened up yet but it was still a lot of fun. The butterflies are done with a D200, Composer, double glass, extension tube, 1.6x teleconverter, SB600 flash and a few were done with the +4 diopter too. The rest were with the Composer, double glass, teleconverter and polarizer. Thanks for looking.

David,


Very nice series, with lots of great color. i especially like #1 and #2, and the abstract nature of #7.

Also really like the simplicity of the 8th and 9th images - and the colors in the third.

Thanks Kmac and Igor. #7 was a lot of fun, it was a waterfall in front of a large window that you walk behind. I did several compositions but this was what I liked best. I am adding the Century plant in BW, I thought it would look good as a contrasty BW. Agree/disagree? Thanks again for looking.
