    Ships of the Fleet (Star Trek Edition)

    Post your macro (and close up) shots here

    I don't believe we have a macro thread anywhere. At least I can't find one. I'll post a couple to get things started! I include decent close ups in the definition by the way. No need for 1:1 reproductions. Unwrapped by Martin Connolly, on Flickr Coriander seeds by Martin Connolly, on Flickr

    SiJ 2015 - Day 18

    SiJ 2015 - Day 7

    I mentioned revisiting this tree on Day One and this is the first new leaves and bud. R and B channels inverted in PS and local contrast boosted with ALCE. The brighter new leaves is, I suspect, due to less IR absorption as a protective measure.

    I put the X100 in macro mode and clicked a few off blindly.....it was so bright I could hardly even see the screen. This was the best of them, but it's not easy getting this close to the bee while walking the dogs.
