Hey, Bob, this is lovely! Wonderful DOF here and the dark, intense purple against the greens is gorgeous. I would have loved to have seen the entire plant like this as it is fascinating as is. Wonderful use of aperture and detail.

Hey Bob,
You really did the lupine justice in this one!!! Very difficult flower because of the size and depth. Only recommendation I have is a clean up of a petal on the lower left (if you are OK with this) . You have captured the essence of the lupine here!!! Very difficult and very well done!

The flower stands out nicely against the dark BG. I'm wondering how you got such a smooth BG at f16? Nice to see the details of a Lupine. I keep wishing there were more of it in the image, but, that would defeat the macro quality.

Really nice close-up. The comp, colors and clarity all look great!

Dennis Moore would be proud. :D
