Spiral by painting-with-light Spiral by painting-with-light
I have just realised that I have not submitted a deviation for just over 4 months ...... what was I thinking of? Sorry for the lack of submissions.

This is another shot taken with my new Canon 100mm macro lens and portrays a flower belonging to the Datura spp [link]

Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wonderful picture here.  Your focus is fantastic!  Would you call this a spiral blurring technique?  haha

Thanks :)
The blurring is caused by the macro lens

I just finished school and don't earn my own money yet, and I want some good lens which are soo expensive, and I need a new camera as well :P But photography is the only hobby I have so yes I probably will be able to get some one day :) Hehe.

I was in your same situation and it took me long till I eventually got my macro. Just don't give up and follow your dreams. Eventually they will come true
