I have done an ok murrine rose. Do not like the stringer roses. I have been a total failure until now in getting something that more or less looks like a red rose.

Nice roses. Way better than a murrine.

Mike, the problem...it was too easy...a simple spiral and implosion. :cool:

Thanks Debbie.

excuse the bad focus...I have auto focus and it is a pain to get the camera to realize that the subject matter is inside the clear surface. Plus the screen is too small to really tell if the image is in focus until you get it into the computer....nuts.... :D

WOW! They are just great!! Since it was too simple, does that mean we get to see more?

Mike, you don't mind coming over and teaching me to make marbles, do you? No? Cool! I'll get the coffee on.

Those roses are fantastic! Lordy.

Unquestionably red roses. Quite nice ones too.

Mike, it's beautiful and very elegant. I like the color green you chose with that shade of red. They really complement each other well.

...I have auto focus and it is a pain to get the camera to realize that the subject matter is inside the clear surface.

I've been battling the same auto focus issue. I've found a way to sort of trick the camera bit - it's not fail-proof, but about 1/2 seems to work. If the autofocus is on the surface, get it to autofocus there, then move the camera in a bit closer so that the actual final shoot focus is where you want it. I can do that with my old camera because if I partially depress the button it autofocuses and then holds. Then I can move the camera a bit closer without letting up on the lens focus position and then shoot. It's sort of like telling the camera to OK, focuse wherever you want, then I'll just move to accommodate it the way I want. :evil: ~Juliet
