    I like the first and last ones, but would rather see the focus a bit deeper in the image on #2. All have very nice colors and composition.

    Thanks Frank.. #2 was a test to see how sharp the new lens was @f2.8 think it did ok... better then my 70-200... Thanks again Tim
  4. I like wide open macros, you just need a strong focal point and splash of color to make them work, the first and second ones does it for me.

  5. I like them all. Your use of DOF to force the eye to the main part of the flower is good and another approach to seeing the entire flower in focus.

    I like the second most. Really love the shallow depth of fileld in makro shots. In oposition to the rule, the shallow depth of field conveys a pleasant and, in your pictures, a rich and beutifully rendered bokeh.
