You are welcome, friend

Very beautiful photos, animals look very beautiful when on flowers, have a nice day @brianhphotos


Thank you very much.


You are welcome

You are a very good artist!! These photos are perfect and wonderful!
Thank you for sharing. 😄💕


Hi Brian, as always very enjoyable, seeing that pollen powder even on such enlargement they are so tiny and fine. Love the colours. Also like that little red plant, looks like a tree. Very nice selection :)

Thank you Stef.
This daisy flower has lots of yellow pollen, just have to make sure none of it goes on your lens, or worse, camera sensor.
I think the red plant was some sort of weed growing out of a tree stump I had cut down.

Gambar yang anda tampilkan sangat luar biasa


wow your click of the red plant is impressive


Thank you. The picture of the red plant was a single shot but came out quite nice.

Outstanding macro images, @brianhphotos

I wish I could take such amazing photos


Thank you for the complement. I like to practice and take lots of photos, learn from my mistakes and try to develop a unique style.

Perfect taking sir @brianhphotos!
Very impressive, hopefully in the future I can do it too.


Thank you kindly, hopefully you will.

Siento extasis absoluta en tus fotos, aprecio su textura, las lineas, hasta olor en alguna de ellas. saludos

I see your pictures are always so perfect.


Thank you for saying so but I can assure you that most of my shots are just ordinary. I only post what I think are my best.


But all your pictures are much higher quality than the pictures I posted.


Well I think the way to achieve best quality for macro images is to:-

  1. Use an Olympus camera
  2. Learn to use Zerene stacker for focus stacking.
  3. Learn to use Capture One for editing.

Yeah, thanks.
i will try to do that.
Hope it will work.
Thanks again for telling me about this.
