This is the entry to Macro Photography contest run by @sultan-aceh. Category B
Was thinking quite a while about the subject for some next easy macro series just walking around the house and the back yard. Something not too much complicated but interestingly looking. And then stumbled across this nice composition with a small, but "haired" cactus.
Today is sunny day, so decision was not to use any sophisticated lighting schemes, but just take it out to direct sunshine in the yard. It brought some really nice light contrast
Here is how general composition looked like and the easily getting closer to the point with a standard 100mm macro lens
Now getting more closer trying to get some inner details using contrasting light from the right
Looks not bad and interesting, but... The most fun begins while changing the lens to magic 1-5x MP-E65mm. It really can reach much more close and much more deeper and you can see all those "almost molecular" connections :)
Just to mention that all shots were made just hand held
Enjoy the visuals!
