  #197 Macros Revisited
Entry 24 of 32
   
 
ouch! sharp       ©2018 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       24th place, 22 points
1/1000s, f13, ISO 640, ?, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Converted the raw photo in Canon's DPP 4 to a tiff. In Affinity Photo cropped, slight de-saturate the reds, minor vignette added, sized and saved as a jpeg for the challenge.       Extra Info: Even after my heavy-handed recent transplant, this little cactus still managed to bloom.

    Thanks to all for the comments, much appreciated.
MrSawyer, I did shoot it quite stopped down. A lot for a 2.8 lens. In hindsight I missed the focus point by a bit. I should have added a bunch more local contrast, that seemed to make it quite a bit sharper. Thanks for the comments.

    Nice and sharp, ha ha! I like the well placed inclusion of the flower and the fact that it is softer. In my tt.

    The flower attracts the eye, but is not in sharp focus. Perhaps a higher f-stop would have rendered spines and flower in focus. The focus on the spines if excellent.

    I think the flower should be the focal point, so it's unfortunately that is is slightly out of focus. Overall composition is very nice.
