Was looking through this
thread and came across Jayman69's Cornflower on Tue Sep 01, 2009 5:25 pm
Nice pics people love the colours in some of them. Here is one from my garden.Flower 01

And it inspired me to dig out one I took last year and had forgotten about.

Looking at the two pick side by side I can clearly see the benefit of the 38mm lens. It really sharpened the detail in the flower itself. I was looking specifically at the bee at the time. I allowed the camera to pick all the settings. Apart from swapping the lens what other settings would people say could I have changed to sharpen the image specifically on the petals of the flower.
Would I be correct in thinking some of the lose in definition is due to the fact that I was stood further away and zoomed in to get the picture I wanted. How much sharper would the picture have been at maybe 50mm with me closer.? (that's going to be my next project.) I am realizing I have a lot to learn.
How much of a difference does my iso500 make to this...Jayman6972 was set to iso200
I know each factor contributes to the final picture and will be taking lots of the same pictures at different setting to answer my own questions but a clue from the dedicated knowledgeable would help me understand what I am seeing.
Thanks for any input you have on this one. I know I understand a lot of what I am seeing but it opens up a massive string of questions so anything people have to add/offer will maybe answer questions I have not actually asked...
