Patty Ann said...

I love these. You did such a nice job. Isn't it amazing how much better these look in the camera than in your yard???

Jess said...

First, what on earth? I have yet to see even a yellow dandelion and here you are posting these awesome pics!?

Second, the last one with the black background is stunning. Love the contrast, and your focus is just perfect on all of these.

Jaymi said...

My faves are #1 and #5, but they are all stunning. I am envious of your marcro skills. I am envious of your macro lens. Must. Get. One.

Happy Mother's Day!!! :)

And it would seem several of us are posting dandelion shots (mine will be up on Tuesday I think... can't remember now when I scheduled it! lol) Beautiful!!! Love 'em! And I've learned something from you (higher iso and smaller f/stop might help get one of the shots I was trying for...)!! (exif info on your photobucket page)

And that 2nd to last one -- wow! My fav!!

LivingFree said...

The humble dandelion makes for some gorgeous photos.

Karli said...

Hi guys! Thank you all so much for your sweet comments! I wanted to reply back to the question from The Baker Family. I'm so sorry...I clicked on your name, but it wouldn't link me to your email. I used the Canon 100mm f/2.8 IS L lens for these shots.

Natalie said...

Are you serious?! LOL girlie, I sooo want a macro lens! My next investment will be a wide angle!!! These are awesomeeee. I love the focus and the clarity and all the teenie tiny details! Rockin it Karli! ;)

happy me said...

I was going to pick a favorite Karli but I cannot. They're all just incredible!

WOW your macros are AMAZING!! I love the crisp clarity of all of them! I want a macro so bad! Maybe for my birthday/xmas present this year!!! The actions/editing you did are flawless! What actions I have to know!! stunning to say the least!

Ashley Sisk said...

It has clearly taken me too long to swing by your blog but these pictures are absolutely gorgeous! Your macro lens eats my macro lens for breakfast. Um...that was random. :)

Very cool!

Thanks for the prayers and good wishes for Kristin. She is doing better and will get to walk on Sunday (high school graduation). Your concerns are deeply appreciated.

Joanne Fowler said...

I haven't visited your blog in forever and when I do... I see we're still shooting similar things! I just shot some dandelions and they look so similar to yours! (Although, not as awesome!). Happy birthday to your little cutie! She's doing so much more than my almost 3 year old! Love your pics! xoxo
