Pink Roses in macro

I showed some images the other day with these pink roses after I had taught a macro class, but I also took these images too. With waterdrops and much closer than the previous shots. These were shot with my new Neweer 660 LED Lights. These are proving invaluable in the studio. Must write a review…
