NYIP Award of Merit

I received an Award of Merit for one of my photos submitted for my NYIP course. I am so proud of this. I submitted this with information on my execution of the image. I spot metered on the highlights and then on the shadows and set my exposure to mid. I also gave him the settings on the camera and the lens that was used. The instructor said in his reply to this image, that he was trying to find something that I could improve on, a critique, that is what his job is, but he could not find anything. He said the image was flawless.

Here is the merit award and also the image that got it...

The Card

Mother's day creations: I created these images myself on Saturday, May 10. I started by going to the grocery store and purchasing a set of flowers, I immediately went for the roses and the stem with smaller flowers. I decided to use a short depth of field to blur the background. I created two, one for mom, the second for granny. I am not sure as to the name of the second flower. I love it because of the yellow and red combination.

Super Macro shots...

I took these images several months ago. I was checking out a setup of reversing a lens on a lens to get a super macro show of some things. Here they are...
