Hope you like it, all comments welcome :)


Val Feldman level-deluxe March 21, 2017

Wonderful design elements, Hayden - love the undulating layers of waves and color - but...what is it? Thinking a fungi of some type but then again, (getting far out here): thinking of layers of processed meat? lol! Inquiring minds need to know! :) :) #1682187

Heidi R. Geise level-classic March 21, 2017

Very interesting. Well captured. #11574038

Hayden Cannon March 21, 2017

Thank you so much Val and Heidi for your kind words. I really appreciate them.
Val - you are sharp as a tack, first guess is right on the money. It's the gills (lamellae) on the underside of the fungi's cap. Thanks again and great guess you're too good! :) #11574071

Val Feldman level-deluxe March 21, 2017

Reading about your background, I should've known it wasn't processed meat - just not "natural" enough by a long shot! :) You are a marvelous macro photographer, Hayden - I hope to be like you when I grow up (and considering my advanced age, I'd better hurry up!) Thanks again for the ID! #11574081

Hahaha yeah I am very much an ecologist so a vast majority of my images are that of the natural world. Unless I can't get out or I am sick. Thank you again, macro is my favourite and where I started as a photographer. I say don't worry about the growing up part, don't change you're such a wonderful person and photographer Val, Growing up is overrated in my books. I plan to never grow up haha stay a kid at heart. Thanks again for your kind words and response, you're more than welcome for the ID :) #11574121

Thank you so much for your kind words and taking time to comment. I hope you are right :) #11574865

Michele Peterson level-classic March 24, 2017

I am happy to know that my first guess of this being the underside of a mushroom was a good guess. Incredible details and a creative use of macro ability! #11575045

Hayden Cannon March 25, 2017

Thank you again Michele for your continued kind comments. You guys are too smart and there's no fooling anyone on here :). Thanks I like to try every type of photography in macro as it's a good challenge and my strength :) #11575294

Martha R. Mazon level-classic March 26, 2017

This is gorgeous. Great balance and light, and of course the curved lines are captivating. Outstanding. #11575558

Hayden Cannon March 26, 2017

Thank you so much Martha for your kind words and feedback. Glad you like it, sometimes I just get an idea in my head and won't stop until I achieve it. This was one of those days :) #11575765

You have certainly mastered the art of macro photography Hayden! The EOD, color and clarity in this image is phenomenal! It looks like a winner to me too my friend! #11576766

Hayden Cannon March 31, 2017

Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback John! I really appreciate them. I have to say took me longer than I care to admit to get EOD haha I entered this one into Elements of Design so I hope you're right and it does go further :) Thanks again! :) #11576962
