    1. Really?! I love this genus! Posted 4 months ago
  2. Again bullseye! You managed to fool me with your modesty, turns out you're top notch at this. Posted 4 months ago
    1. Thanks!

      Or, not exactly top-notch...This photo is heavily processed. Well, maybe not 'heavily', but I adjusted the light in photoshop because it looked bad initially. Afterwards, I couldn't decide if it looked better or worse after the processing, but went with it anyway ;P. I'll email you the original so you can gasp in horror at it.

      1. Sounds like pretty common operations to me :) Posted 4 months ago
        1. Ha, well maybe. I'm just not usually much of a photo editor and thus feel like I'm doing something sneaky when I do more than just lightly edit. Posted 4 months ago
          1. I normally agree with that and follow the same mindset, but consider this type of photography the exception. Exposure changes, fixing damage, artifacts, etc are normal if not inevitable. Posted 4 months ago
            1. Hmm, true. Indoor macro is so different from outdoor macro. Posted 4 months ago
              1. Absolutely, fully agree. Posted 4 months ago
