I went out shooting with Brandon (Bubba) at lunch today, and we angled over to a really pretty dogwood tree. While Brandon shot with the D70 / 70-200VR + 500D, I shot with the D2H / 300mm 2.8 + 1.4 TC. I haven't seen his shots yet, but I was very impressed at how well the 300mm did from about 10 feet away from the dogwood blossoms.

Those are great shots....I really like the one w/the TINY fly in it!
Hmmm....maybe Patrick's gonna have to hand his D2H over to me after all so i can get some shots like that...not that I would even dare to say I could be as good as you. but with the right equipment, I sure could try! :)

Nice work, Frank! Interesting choice of equipment, but your long lens has brought out an amazing amount of detail and depth of field in these lovely dogwood blossoms!

Leigh,

I have no doubt that you could blow me away. 8) I'm really a pretty below-average photog. I get decent results every now and then from sheer persistence. :wink:

Really nice, Frank. I'm still amazed at what that 300 will do.

I'm going to *try* and get a couple I shot yesterday with the D70 processed and posted this weekend.

So, not only Gale is using a tele lens for macros :lol:
They look nice indeed.
I just wonder (since this tree doesn't occur here), are those flowers white or is this the real color, and just a result of trying to control the highlights?

Harry,

Probably missed the WB a little. The blooms are pretty white in the real world.

Thanks for the feedback.

Frank
