This is an intriguing idea for a macro shot. I have never seen the inside of a Camellia bud before. The composition showes well defined details and good colors. The textures of the cut bud are also interesting.

this was one of the very few true macro (only 3) and apparently some people prefered considering a macro an elephant or dog head! crazy;
outstanding sharp details;
(il y a vraiment trop de gens stupides sur ce site)

I think this is quite an original entry for this contest, and it is also the first time I have seed the inside of a Camelia bud. It is very delicate colors in this bud, and I therefore think the vibrant green background is stealing too much attention. A background in brown hues would have worked better in my opinion.

Your photo is however nice and sharp showing clear and well defined details, and also the exposure is very good.

The format and framing works well, but perhaps a bit more negative space at the top and bottom would have been even better. Still this is an all together lovely and well taken photo, and I wish you luck with the contest.

This is a well thought out composition, it's interesting to view this dissected bud and all of the details that are visible here, the stem and the changing petals as this flower is developing inside. This is well focused, the image is clear, exposure is well managed, co,ors and tones appear natural. Well composed against the vivid green background, well,presented! Best to you in the contest!

A very nice image with good colors and immaculately sharp details. Unless this subject is about the size of a pin head I doubt that you are approaching 50x magnification. But a very fine image nonetheless.

Comment from Cephus


Can not believe that the magnification is 50x - at 50x, a 1/2 mm wide bud would fill the entire frame - I can believe 5x though.
Detail is rather soft and a lack of contrast makes it rather difficult to discern details.
