Bob,

That is a gorgeous image Bob. I use that lens and LOVE it too. I can not think of a single thing that i do not like about it, that goes for both the image you posted and the lens.

It does work now! *thumbs up*

That flower has great color and I think you captured it very well. The orange off to the left though distracts me a bit and makes my eye focus on that a bit more than it probably should.

Bob,

I can see it now and it is a very fine image. I'm sure you must be thrilled with your new lens (the 70-200VR was my first pro glass, and like Dave, I love it). I agree with Elliott that the orange is a little distracting, but I'd rather have the shot with it than no shot. It looks a tad hot on my monitor. You might want to try it with about a 3rd of a stop lower EV comp, but that may just be my monitor calibration. Overall it is excellent. :wink:

Great shot Bob, glad to see you're doing justice to the 70-200VR. It's one sweet lens and is my all-round fav. You might want to look at a Canon 500D to marry to it if you really like flowers - turns it into a macro.

I like the angle of the image as well as the water droplets. I also like the yellowing edge...nature in the raw. :)

I agree with Sandi, if you get a chance, try a Canon 500D close up filter. It is almost as good as a true macro lens. The DOF created by the 70-200 is hard to beat with any lens.

Just one question, isn't that a lily?

I know, I know,
My wife come home and mentioned "That's not an Iris....It's a lily.....

So I stand corrected.

What's the really fun part of this hobby?
