Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro

The second Monday of the month challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally is MACRO.  I took this close-up of part of our rubber tree after a heavy rain using my iPhone5.

  1. What was I thinking–one week ahead of myself. I’m delighted that you tried the inverted feature. I like that one the best, because it gives it a surreal quality. It’s almost like a watercolor. Happy Photo Challenge.

    I do love how good our phones have become at taking fab shots..i love these..most likely because of the rain! we sure need some here 🙂 lovey images sweets 🙂 Hugs Bev x

  3. Really love the composition. I too often stand back and photograph a whole leaf. This partial leaf with red stem across it is magical!

  4. I prefer the first and third, which show the drops in all their glory. I do love drop photos. 🙂


  5. I love the composition of the shot you are highlighting. I can’t pick a favorite, I really find elements in both the B & W images and the color shot that I really like.

    Impressive macro photography dear Linda!The huge,droplet-dripping leaf is stunning in all three photos.Did you change the screen options to get the second one?Whatever you did the outcome is gorgeous.We call the tree Ficus and we grow it indoors as well.I love it for its shiny oval leaves,it made a perfect photo for the challenge 🙂 xxx

    • Thank you, dear Doda! My edits are nothing fancy. I think I used Fotor to get the black and white and the inverted. Silly me, I can’t remember now what I did! Anyway, so glad you liked this. I used to have a Ficus tree in my house years ago but it died. I remember it having small leaves, though. Oh, well! You can see how well my memory is working these days! HA! 😆

        You and Fotor did a very good job,dear Linda!The second one is magnificent!The one with the smaller leaves,you had indoors,belongs to the same family,it’s a lovely houseplant.It seems,I pleasantly jogged your memory 🙂 xxx

  7. Well done, creative and artistic! Love it, Johanna

    I find the second one intriguing. I’m a big fan of color so I likely will always pick that.

  9. well done Linda!! the inverted is interesting!!
