2 lenses in one! ;) Just a fun test shot from my newly arrived Tokina 12-14 f.4. I bounced a little flash from my SB800 into a piece of copy paper to help light it better. Shot it 1 handed! :shock: Looks like one on Ednaz' efforts (to some small degree). PS, I just got this Gerberra in a 4 in pot Sat afternoon, so it' hasn't grown any.

bEAUTIFUL dAISEY.


(quite a halo, steve.
I swear, this flower has yellow edges. I did hit it with much sharpening at all! I cropped it 50%, reduced it's size by 50%, then hit it with Fred Miranda's Nik CS Sharpener @Level 1!

Like this, Gordon?

Nice image Steve. If you had the Velvia PI from Fred Miranda it would really bring that yellow edge out. I like to use this PI for flower shots.
Boy, that IS better, thanks!

Both versions are beautiful Steve, but I actually like the first one a little better. In any case, I'm very discouraged that you and Gale are beating me and my tripod with shots using only one hand. I mean, Jeez.... 8)

I did take several shots, before I got one I liked. :wink: And, man, is that 2X with it's RRS L bracket, the SB800, and lens heavy when you're shooting with one lousy hand! I could'a used a tripod, believe me!

That's very nice! I also like the first one better because the sky looks more natural. This Velvia stuff sometimes does a bit more than we want. Well, maybe the flower from the second and the sky from the first one would be an option.
regards
