Macro Monday: Clover

Macro photography really interests me.  There seems to be no rules.  The tack sharp clarity that makes one image jump out at you makes another seem strange.  Or just off.  I find myself shooting the same object a good 50 times, and in the end I study each picture, and still have a difficult time deciding what I like best.  This clover, for instance, was elusive for me.  I think in the end I settled on the first one.  I kind of like the blurry, slightly mysterious look the shallow depth of field gave me.  The second seems more realistic.  It is probably more technically sound, but it is less interesting to me.  I like the different angle on the third.  This is one of the few where I like color in a macro.  It seems that macro is so often about the detail, which is easier to see in a black and white image.  Sometimes the colors are almost too much up close.  But I like it this time.  I would love to hear your feedback.  What makes a macro image catch your eye?

    I totally agree with you. Before I read your comments i had the same thoughts. I definitely like the first one best. In fact, I started thinking, where could I put that picture in my house? It’s so cool. But I do like the other two as well, and the third one is very pretty in color. But definitely the first one. I think my downstairs bathroom…ReplyCancel
