Very nice Mike, you have a nice collection of of colours here.

I particularly like the DOF of the first one which gives a nice effect for the backdrop. The last one is also very interesting, it is very difficult to get a good composition for flowers with lots of "limbs" and wide span, you have done well with this one.

Regards,
Jonathan

Thx Jonathan. I was getting lazy with my composition last week so I made it my focus today.

Thx Harry. I try and go for a walk every day to get some shooting done. So far so good until the boss gets mad at me :wink:

Nicely done Mike. I'm sure that you are much more productive after one of these walks, so the boss should be happy. :lol:

Thx Frank. It's been a slow week at work so nobody minds terribly much.

Thx Lin and Dave. D70 + 55/3.5 AI. I'm looking around for a PK-13 extension to bring it down to 1:1. MF takes some getting used to and the D70 VF isn't the greatest but it's a truly outstanding macro lens for the price. Besides having slower glass doesn't hurt terribly much since for macro it needs to be stopped down anyways. In terms of sharpness it's excellent close up (shot around with a 105/2.8 awhile back and I actually prefer the 55 for clarity). The bokeh is also fairly good as long as the backgrounds aren't too challenging (then again that goes for all lenses).

The last 2 days have been pretty windy though so I've been limited on my shot selection. It's calm today so I should find some better subjects.
