Thanks again! Not much post-processing (except cropping). I’m pretty sure I didn’t even bump the saturation.

People think of Floriade as “same old same old”, but that’s the challenge if you’re a photographer!

More pics here (and of other stuff too). http://www.flickr.com/photos/burningsolo

wow…great pics from what sounds like a great piece of kit.

Much in the way of after capture adjusting ? Or are these au natural.

Seriously nice pics. Thanks for sharing

Absolutely beautiful! I wandered around Floriade on the weekend and thought it all looked pretty standard … same old, same old. Thanks burningsolo for giving me a new perspective. Very refreshing!

Hi, you’re all far too kind! I’m using a Canon 5DMkII and a 100mm Canon Macro Lens.
