Finally some sun!

  1. It wasn't much but I was still able to sneak in an hour of shooting today. Flowers aren't my thing but I borrowed a 105 2.8 for the week so figured I should try it out.


    Personally I'm very impressed with the 105. Great colors and contrast. Bokeh can get a little messy though. Love the feel of the focus ring. It was windy and the D70 VF made it tough to work with but I managed.

    Critique away :D

    #1 & 2 are my favorites. #1 has a great balance with the 2 flowers. Other than that, I can't comment much. Not being a flower guy, I'd have to say they are pretty.

    BTW...You really need to set up a gallery :D

  3. OH WOW!! Way to go Mike!! :) :) :) :)
  4. Nicely done Mike. I too own that lens and find it to be really good for certain types of photography. You have some good images here.
  5. Nice, especially the first one has a very harmonic radiance.

    Very nice Mike. One of these days, when / if birdie shooting gets boring (really never, I hope....;-)), I'm going to get a macro lens and go after some shots like these. I too like #1 and #2 the best.

    Thanks for posting.

  7. Hi Mike, flower beauties. My favorites are #1 and #2. In #1, the two flowers shapes are nicely balanced. Just a minor comment on the #1 : I would like to see a bit more space at the top of the image. Congrats, you have a great work
