There is the tiniest feather on the window this morning, it seemed like it was calling me to take some macro shots. I decided I wanted to push the lens to it's extreme and create some abstracts...

I want to try this again when the feather is backlit by the sun!

The detail here is incredible, almost like pencil drawings. I really like the angle and gradient effect of the focus and detail in #2. Hard to believe that it's the same feather as #4!

Thanks for your thoughts!
I agree!
The feather is way smaller than the picture in #4, its so tiny you almost can't notice it on the window!
I hope it is still there tomorrow, I want to do the same pictures with it backlit by the sun. We are supposed to get snow starting tomorrow, so it might be cloudy.

I love backlit feathers! I found one this weekend, but my photos didn't turn out so well. I'll have to keep living vicariously through your photos for now! smile

Thanks..that is what is fun about sharing!
It is still great practice even if they don't turn out how we envision.
I just posted some pano views of the field behind my house. I am going to post more winterscapes for you. Time to get them off my hard drive and share them!

#2 reminds me of a fossil. In # 5 I like the details.

Thanks, I can see what you mean, it does look like a fossil.
I hope the feather is still there tomorrow, I would like to take pictures of it when the sun is backlighting it to bring out more detail and get a better exposure.
I appreciate your taking the time to tell me your thoughts!
