Been a while, but found a little time to post. Just a couple shots that I found a little time to process.

Nice ... the processing suits these.

I think the center of that first shot is just "the bee's knees". I don't know how much work was done in post, but I suspect that what we see is pretty darn close to what came out of the camera.

Tell us how you got these, HBG. :fingerscr

Thank you very much BF and MA.
Not much pp at all. Pretty much just a quick sharpen is it on first shot, and just a little slide back on the highlights, contrast, and a slight sharpen is pretty much all on second shot. Shot with a Canon 1D MkIV with a 100LIS Macro attached, handheld, is all. The nice early morning light helped a lot.

Wow! I'm impressed with the sharpness, especially being that they're handheld shots. Very nice images.

Love that first shot, almost glows against the dark background.

Just stunning HBG. The light in the first is super lovely, and the softness in the second really works for me. Only (very slight) nitpick for me would be I think I would prefer the the bud on the left in the second shot slightly out of focus. But both are still wonderful.
