It looks very good as an over all visual pattern on the screen. Suggestion: you could play and organise this pictures like it is here, or differently, making a nice collage, then print out and hang it on the wall.

The answer to your question is YES. And you have done this with intimate insight and understanding of the essence of your subject. Isn't it wonderful to reach into the depths of the narural world and feel the universal connection with the spirit of all things living. Keep pushing the limits.

Beautiful gallery, very well done! GMV!
I can get completely lost in these images.....They really pull me in!
this gallery really works because of the combination of images presented together as a whole--what might not stand on its own becomes very compelling as a group. Very nicely done!
Great use of shallow DOF. Good eye for unique compositions as well.
Brian with an Eye

Wow, excellent abstract gallery! Quite soothing actually. Masterfully done.
When creative eye and perfect skill is applied, an impression is all that is needed. Easier said then done!
This is a truely beautiful gallery Raymond.
I love this gallery. Your use of a very shallow DOF has inspired me to try some similar shots. I notice that many of your shots are at 105mm and was wondering if you're using the Sigma 105 f/2.8 lens stacked with extension tubes. I have that combination so that would give me a good place to start with my attempts. Thanks for sharing your images with the rest of us. Voted.
Also, thanks for your comments on my floral gallery.
Nice macro work !

The thing that struck me first is how they all work together in these thumbnails to form a flower in it's own right. The directions and different textures and colors all add to that. And yes, I do believe one can attain a spiritual contact with flowers. I do every day here at home...they quiet my soul.
Awesome !!! great macro, composition, tones & contrast .
Very well done.
Thank you Raymond for your nice comment.
What flow! You see as i see. This collection is outstanding!
