Thanks, Nick. The close focusing capability of this lens allows a great deal of DOF flexibility. In this image I tried to make a small flower look big and a big background look less significant without obliterating it completely.For f/11.0 that's very decent background blur and a surprisingly narrow dof.
I live on a street that has what they call a regrind surface--made up of crushed old pavement. This shot is solid gold!
Looks like steppes! Well seen.
Nicely done! I really like the perspective and subject.
Stunning! Impressive subject, but strong picture of it, that's what counts!
Nice and low, Very nice Andy!
