Shallow DOF provided the following effect, kind of like the flame from a gas stove:

Reds and oranges are hard to do, but you've made them look simple here. I enjoyed your artful compositions, color and DOF.

Thank Virginia for the complements.

As for the orange, I think the shade WB and spot metering helped, and there were no direct lighting. I just press the shutter release, the rest were done by the D70...

Thanks Gilles, Dave, Virginia, Mark and Kevin for your comments.

I quite enjoyed using the 105mm, particularly the DOF and bokeh at the wider end of the aperture. I use it for candid portrait too, though the extra working distance can be a blessing and a disadvantage. Nonetheless a very nice piece(s?) of glass.

Regards,
Jonathan
