Loney Winter by JVarriano Loney Winter by JVarriano
This shot was taken in a cold winter rain, and is a macro. These berries are very small.. about 1 cm wide.

Post process - I cropped it, and then changed the tone from green/gray (as it was origionally) to a blue/green.

Thanks for looking!

It's so bitter sweet, you get a deep feeling of a rainy gloomy sadness, the title fits perfectly. Brilliant work.

Indeed it is ^^ Ahh I'm glad your one of those artists who enjoys your own work, some people are always like "I hate it, it's awful, it's crap etc." when really it isn't, they should be proud of their art.

The self deprecating artist nonsense is really not my thing. I am always surprised when I hear other talk poorly about their own work! I always want to be like "do you have ANY self esteem?" It makes me feel sorry for them.

I know right, it'd be okay if they were just making some sort of constructive criticism or something, or they know how they could of improved or somthing like that and they justified there comments, but when it's just stupid "oh it's crap" it does seem rather like they're just looking for compliments, or like you said, you just feel sorry for them when they genuinely have no self esteem. It feels good to be able to rant =D

What macro lens do you use for this?
Reply
:iconjvarriano:
JVarriano Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
I actually used the lens that came with the D50 and a x10 macro filter! My 15-55mm lens I belive. :)

I am hoping to have a "real" macro lens soon, but one never knows what will happen!

REALLY! what kind of macro filter is it you have?? Mind linking me to it looks proffesh! Your good with the ole macro so I wouldn't say you shouldn't get one :)

:giggle: Aw! Thanks.

I bought these: [link] but I paid about 20$ so I am sure there is a better price out there than what they are listing!

I left a very thorough comment on this club blog about macro filters: [link]
