Seeing RED !

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Classic_Man, Dec 2, 2005.

  1. Right now I'm angry 'cos of a (intentional) mix-up by a US seller who sent me the wrong lens (should have been a Noct)...& in the meantime sold the lens to another person...

    ...this vendor is dragging his feet when it comes to refund & DHL return costs...:mad: 

    These images sum up how I feel::Curved:

    AiS 28mmf2 wide open at 1/4000s at ISO400:

    Well not only red...:tongue:

    ...but anyway:

    I like the diagonal composition in this one:

    Sometimes you can control lighting holding leaves/branches, acting as "barndoors"; channelling the light where you want it:

    My 40 year old Kowa 55mm f1.0 (1:1) fixed aperture, fixed focus lens got pressed into use, just before it started to rain:

    The sky didn't remain deep blue, but still provided a suitable OOF background with the Ai 105mmf2.5 I have on loan:

    Ahh well...seeing red is not always that bad after all :biggrin:
  2. Beautiful red, and very interesting composition and perspective! Great stuff.

    Image 2 is my favorite!
  4. I like the diagonal in that one

    I like the way the colors are split in a diagonal line.

    I believe that a tripod helps alot in such situations: not only for stability (& sharpness), but also as an aid to composition.

    Being part of this forum is the other part :tongue:

    Seriously: in the very little time I've been a member of Nikoncafe (thanks again Andreas), I've made new friends, learnt alot, & am delighted to perceive a genuine "warmth", as opposed to the mud-slinging contests that dominate other places.

    Thanks all of you :smile:
  5. I love the last one, great contrast of colors.
