    Beautiful! Did you require a special filter to make this so crisp?

  • Jan Hoffman

    Jan Hoffman said (17 Feb 2008):

    Thanks! No filters, Jennifer. This was taken with a Canon Powershot G9 set to macro mode. I used Photoshop CS3 to post-process but no filters or sharpening applied; just a crop for composition.
    --Best regards, Jan
