Galaxy forming ...
Beautiful folds of colour and light, I love the abstract composition of the flower, looks alsmost like silk material, bravo Ron!

This looks like an experiment with the retro-macro technique. As you provide Exif-data with it I suppose it isn't such an experiment, is it?

@Mirko Herzner: This is a photo of a canna flower using my Canon 70 – 200 mm with a Canon 500 D close-up lens attached (just like a filter) ... it's sort of a "poor man's" macro ... I'm not certain if that's the retro-macro technique.

Excellent macro, Ron. Beautiful color, just excellent.

A brilliant melody of flower melting, wow, I love how you're doing this Ron :)

Wow! Brilliant color!

Really neat, Ron!

Perfect macro and a brilliant abstract. The colors are beautiful as well. Nice work! Is it a flower?

@Tracey: It is a flower ... a canna. When the flowers first appear they look like this ... mostly yellow with red spots ... as the flower ages (over the course of a few days) it gradually turns completely red.
Hej Ron. It's something quite similar to the retro-macro technique then. The poor man's tag fits both of them: For a retro-amcro you simply use any lens (wide-angle for stronger effects) and hold it in front of your camera turned around. Then you need to focus by moving the camera back and forth. Needs some practice but is great fun...

Wonderful that you made something natural so abstract. Really a stunning image.....

Ron, this is so pretty. You just take us right into the flower. It's a lily, probably a tiger lily would be my guess. Thanks for this up close and personal look into the world of flowers.

A floral abstract that could be a study of the surface of the sun. Well seen.

Wonderful abstract Ron! Beautiful dreamy expression...

Looks like a modern abstact painting. Excellent.

Like the journey of the incredible shrinking man as he ventures into life as a molecule. This is really super, Ron!

superb... just galactic!

Wasn't sure about this one at first... but the more I looked the more I began to see the absolute beauty in the abstractness of the image. Bravo, Ron!!
