Couldn't resist taking another shot of this amazing flower. 105mm macro lens + 68mm of extension tubes. Twelve images stacked in Helicon Focus. Here's the other one:

Wow this is amazing! I absolutely love it! You have some of the best flower photos I have ever seen! Excellent! Excellent work! :clap: So detailed! Oh! I have one question actually....what is better to get first...a macro or telephoto lens? Kind of off topic, I know. Back on topic...I've always found that particular colour difficult to capture...kind of like red, but you've done it so nicely. =)

Thanks for your kind words :) The colours in this shot are actually a little too bright for my taste. I usually don't shoot flowers in the middle of the day (due to the harsh light), but since the wind had just calmed down, I took the chance nevertheless.

To judge from the many flower shots your gallery, you should probably get the macro lens first. You'll be able to get even more up close than now. The telephoto lens is better suited for shooting birds and other kinds of wildlife.

You're welcome. =) Thank you so much for the advice. Yeah, I usually like shooting earlier in the morning. In the middle of the day there are too many shadows, or at least they're more prominent, and the strong sunlight is always a problem with most colours. Wind can be a great issue. It's still a wonderful photograph though. Would decresing the lighting of the photo is photoshop(or a program of that sort) help any? I heard that macro lenses are quite expensive....guess I'll be saving for a while. =)
