Roses for the NikonCafe ladies

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by daodang, Jul 2, 2005.

  1. .... for their kindness and photographic skill.

    Celestial countess (shrub rose)

    Tea rose (they smell so good in the evening air)

    Little Orleanese (shrub rose)

    The pictures were taken with a Tamron 90mm macro.

    Best regards.

    Sorry, not one of the ladies here,

    but wanted to compliment you on your excellent work. 2 & 3 are perfectly executed. Now, if these were my own flowers, I would've done a little "creative gardening" on #1, by clipping off that dying blossom, and pulling together the fresher ones with maybe a twistie tie underneath, out of the camera's view. imnsho, :wink: that dying blossom hurts the otherwise super composition, mostly because it's color clashes with the other blossoms'.

    Steve, good point about the dying blossom. When I took the shot, I was attracted by the flowers arrangement and didn't saw the way to improve it as you suggested. Appreciates the suggestion. Best regards.
  5. Glad you like them Gale. See you in August.

    Absolutely gorgeous flowers, and excellent shots Dao. I'm most impressed by the results from that lens. OTOH, the lens can't do anything without a skilled artist behind it. :wink:

    Very well done.
  7. Holy macro they are exceptional, I like the first one the most.
  8. Dao, you sure know the way to a woman't heart! These are beautiful!

    Thank you

    Made me smile for sure! Those are lovely and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
  10. They seem almost mystical. Thank you for sharing.
  11. Appreciates the kind words, my friend.
  12. Gilles, they are less exceptional than your foods (pictured in the other post) because I can only look at them (and with some species, smell their perfume). On the other hand, good wine and tasty foods excite at least three senses :) Thanks for the kind words.
  13. Dear Leigh, Virginia and Crystall, really glad you like them.
  14. These are stunning pictures! I can almost smell them through the monitor!
