17. Macro Monday: Frosted

Yesterday I went to the Tropical Paradise Show over at the gardens and got a fresh breath of Spring!  The color and displays were just stunning.   I thought this hibiscus bud looked like it was frosted in powdered sugar….almost good enough to eat!  🙂

  1. That is beautiful! I wish I could find a breath of spring around here! LOL

  2. Aha, you ate it, too?:-) I like that you have taken with the stalk, which makes the flower comes out of the picture.

  8. You know I love flower macros and this one of the nicest! What a good idea to get all of us our of the winter doldrums! You shot this perfectly with great detail and such a nice background blur. I like that jaunty little kink to the stem too.

  18. Pretty! Our Hibiscus is blooming again, I guess it like to be inside. 🙂

  19. A wonderful softness to this. Now, how did it taste?

  20. It looks like it’s flocked–scarcely seems real.

  21. So beautiful! It looks like it’s made of fuzzy felt…

  22. Stunning close-up with great colours and emphasis on all the little details like the veins in the bud.

  23. It looks so velvety- great detail!

  24. Super macro and your background is so complementary! BTW, what lens did you use?

    • Thanks! 🙂 I used my 55-250 lens….250mm, f5.6, 1/25 sec, ISO 800
      Then I processed it using a little topaz adjust-mild on just the bud to bring out a little more detail. Also adjusted levels and raised the saturation on the magenta a bit.

  25. Sounds like I would have liked it there. Love the colors in this.

  26. Stunningly beautiful
