I love abstracts. I was wondering if Jim used a 105 macro lens here? #147

Hi Stanley,

I used a 100-300mm telephoto, probably at about 105mm, and shot from about 6 or 7 feet away.

Thanks! #239

Your Lily gives me a feeling of being under water, floating. It's very soothing. The color version of this image has a much more intense effect than the greyscale. Thanks. Mercedez #1164

Hi all,

I love this photo as well. I would like to comment by saying that I love macro (close up actually) photography. I differenciate because I have found that often one can use a zoom (I use a 210mm Vivitar) and get a really good 'marco' when a marco lense or extension tube does not work.
