Blue Lines by Xerces Blue Lines by Xerces
Glitter and water droplets on a blue feather. Nothing to do with the Massive Attack song, although I was listening to Unfinished Sympathy at the time and felt I needed a little longer than just 'Blue', so the album name was a bit better =D
Water was added with a syringe.

Again, no editing except for the frame and watermark.

Done with a Canon EFS 60mm f/2.8 macro usm lens.

Polished, clean, rounded.
Wow, I love the atmosphere from this piece...it's just so tranquil.

The macros do you justice, or is it vice versa?

thank you so much! very glad you like it. i think the little fluffy parts of the feather give some good tranquillity- its so weird seeing them this close up too =D

It's ALSO different for you...to go for something soft!

blue is my fave colour! although yeah- it's usually black and red and my photos =D
and i can't really do horror shoots in macro =D i do love landscape and APN photography, but i rarely get to do any living in a city

ROFL @ horror macro.

Fair enough, I like when you explore new mediums and subjects and junk.
It's rad.
