I enjoyed these macro images! I think my favorite image is the one of the fly of the strawberry. Don’t worry, no fly’s were hurt in the making of this photo! I increased the exposure to give it a white screen feel. Increased clarity of the fly in camera raw, and played with levels in photoshop. For the pink flower I increased the clarity and brightness of the water drop area, while decreasing the exposure of the surrounding area to give a vignette feel. For the white flower I increased clarity of the entire image and desaturated it. Using a colored paint brush I painted in a light coloring around the edges of the flower, to add some color to the predominantly white image. Finally, for the rose I increased the clarity of the center while blurring the surrounding edges. I decreased saturation to define the edges of the petals, and added a masked multiply layer at 50% to darken the edges.
