I'm definitely in love with this lens. The Sigma 150 is a very special one...

I mainly use it to shoot insects, but ocassionaly I can't help being distracted by a pretty flower...

Thanks for your kind words Darren.

I'm not much of a flower shooter, so any C&C is more than welcome.

i like the DOF in #3.... and the backlighting in #2
well done
great lens
the bokeh isn't the best in bright light/#1 exhibits THAT issue

Thanks Greg and Robert for your encouraging words.

Do you think the distracting/busy background of #1 is due to lens bokeh, or rather DOF and background distance since I shot @f8?

Yeah, I think it is the F8 that got ya there... You might find you don't need so much with that kind of shot as the blooms don't have a whole lot of depth to be captured (compare to a Hibiscus, daylily, or Iris, where those f8+ apertures are needed for full bloom focus). This lens should have beautiful bokeh, so I was surprised when I saw the lens, based on #1 primarily. The lens should be plenty sharp wide open and deliver great shots f4 - f5 with that subject... Look at the bokeh in the latter three, very very nice... What's different? Isolation, and background, likely, closer to the subject...
