Took this picture about an hour ago 8:50 EDT with
D70
70-300/f4-5.6D
@300mm
ISO 200
Shutter 4sec.
F8
I thought I would have more DOF and more of the roses would be in focus as well as the spider in the upper right. I had to manual focus due to low light...... I'm hoping for suggestions on what I could have done differently!

Mike,

I'm amazed that you got this shot so late in the day. Did I read correctly that your shutter time was 4 sec?? Were you on a tripod?

Nicely done. :wink:

Perhaps a higher ISO would have allowed your shutter speed to be faster.

I love the pink roses.

Frank,
It was dark enough that I had a hard time seeing to focus.. I tried again tonight with some shots at 30 seconds...see my pbase for one of those. Yes I was on a very shakey tripod.
Thanks for the coment.

Patrick,

Would a faster shutter speed help my DOF on this type of shot? I though I needed a smaller aperture? Thanks for your input.

Mike
