Captured this one in the morning, thought I'd share:

Image

Caught with my new 35/2.0 without any close-up lens (!) at F/8.0 1/500 sec, only slightly cropped to 3322x2249. Set camera-profil to vivid (no other contrast/saturation enhancement) and did a little sharpening. Exposure -1EV.

Hey Thomas,

just like your post with the grass some time ago, I think this one too is really interesting. Very impressive results you and this lens can produce.

My only problem is that I'm torn between this lens or the Raynox DCR-150 or DCR-250 to boost my macro-capabilities..lol.

There's great DOF, texture and highlights in this image. The way this light divides the leaf into lighter and darker sections, while keeping the dewdrops in focus is very pleasing.

Cheers :-)

Exactly what I was thinking.
That is one nice lens, you can see the air bubbles in the water.

Nope, Jake, I don't think so. The little "bubbles" should be the magnified structure of the leaf!

Oh... I agree with Mark then, I love how the h2o maginifies the light too, and the shadows the droplets in the light put of are awesome.

Very nice picture Thomas! I love the magnified structure inside those drops!

@Lah: I have the raynox 250 lens and I think that Thomas' lens gives much better image quality and also much wider DOF. With the Raynox you can magnify to extremes though. So that's pretty much the choice I guess...

As an added bonus, here's not just a leaf from a tulip, but the majesty herself:

Same lens (35/2.0) at F/8.0 1/2000 sec, -2EV+D-lighting, vivid setting, a little sharpening.

oh, man, the light on that first one, the leaf...I love how the light went right thru the drops, and almost made rainbows on the otherside..funny how light plays like that, perfect capture, and you know that is a beautiful tulip, looks a little back lit, to me...with the way the light shows thru the petals, and the angle of the shadows..

great eye, great capture, great camera and lens...

way to go, Thomas..
