your welcome... but i just thought of something that would make that even better not to down that picture its still great but you could have used a smaller aperture.. I dont know what your smallest f number is but like the lowest one it can go and focus on that flower that is in sharp focus in this one and then you will clearly see that and the background wont take away from it.

Hey patti,

congratz on navigating the "doo dads" successfully. May it lead to many more photos from you in the forums.

Undeniably the first on is pleasingly colorful and the flowers are amazing. Interesting shapes and textures mixing. But the very refined depth of field that is normally associated with macro-photography is hard to spot here and it seems a little two dimensional. You have taken this further away from the flowers than in the second one and the light from what seems to be an overcast sky, have also stolen away some depth by not lending much shadow play to the image.

The second one is also beautiful, but here you have the helpful assistance of sunlight, making the colors pop all the more, giving a very wide range of yellows and interesting shadows. You are closer to the subject and have much more depth of field.

I think the people who invented macro-photography and started taking flower pics wanted us to feel like a bug on approach to a colorful airfield. The second one accomplished that :-)

Cheers!

Thanks Oly-Geoff...it was my first time out with the camera, and the lense. Am glad that those flowers, from the Rose Parade floats turned out..not the best for composing, a ton of people, pushin and shoving..(it is California, ya know). Thank you for making me a little note..your opinions on this forum, mean the world to me..

patti

Hi Patti,

I know less is supposed to be more in macro, but I adore number one. The colours, the shapes of the closed buds and flowers, its just stunning. Number two is fast on the heels of number one. I love macro and have done quite a bit, but I shall be patient and wait until I take some new ones. That way I am learning along with the new camera.

These are great Patti, thanks for sharing.

Cheers Ormina
