I'm always stuck taking photos from a distance and posting pics like the one above. I want to see my plants in better quality photos is what I'm trying to do while getting the whole layout as well.
Basically they are just cropping the pictures. They probably do some curve adjustment to bring out the highlights and shadows. Also, these 12g's may be too shallow to see ripple effect.
Btw, what lens are you using?
