Last flowers for 2005...

  1. ...i guess !?!

    For these two shots, i used old lenses, to check their qualities: i'm VERY happy with them !!!

    The first one was shot with the D70 and, to get some more DOF, a Micro-Nikkor 55mm. f/2.5 AIS, ISO 200, RAW, at 1:500 @ f/11 with the onboard flash (reduced to the minimum) triggering an SB80-DX bounced to the ceiling.

    For the second one, i used a Nikkor 105 mm. f/2.5 AIS, same settings as the previous one, plus another slaved flash behind the flowers.
