I am thrilled with this photo of raindrops on an iris leaf! There are teeny tiny drops all over the leaf if you look close; that is not image noise. The Canon 100mm f2.8L IS macro is the hero lens on this shoot. In Lightroom when you check the lens correction section, there are no corrections needed for this lens; it is that good.
A year or so ago I bought myself a beautiful orchid; and tho I have taken photos of these flowers, this is the first one I love. I used Lightroom 4's light vignette, which is really appropriate for this. Also I put the plant in my bathtub so it had a nice neutral surround.
There were magnificent clouds this afternoon, but I was working and by the time I got out to shoot they were dissipating. Still I like this landscape shot looking east in Lake California; the haze contributes nicely to the aerial perspective. I used the Canon 100mm L 2.8 IS lens, which is a macro but shoots everything beautifully.
