Here are a few more I found. The first is with an Olympus OM 24 f/2.8, the second is with a Minolta Rokkor 28 f/2, the third with a Leica R 90 f/2, and the last with a Zeiss Jena 135 f/3.5

Thanks all. I can't say I feel like I deserve the strokes tho. God did most of the work. Besides, flower shots look so much better from someone like Denoir or others who actually know how to use a camera! I just click around.

Great shots bifur.... that Oly 70-150 looks great and so does the Canon FD for close focus.

@Bif: The 300/2.8 seems to do flowers very well.


Yup! I think that lens can do anything well. Seriously a superb piece of glass! Well worth lugging around!

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'm afraid I can't take too much credit though except perhaps in making a good choice when it comes to lenses. Most of my flower shots look as they do because of the rendering style of the lenses that I used.

Smridevan wrote:
Denoir, do you use a different sharpening technique for flowers vs other scenes? 2 and 4 look incredibly sharp.


Probably my standard method, but those are old shots so I can't be 100% sure.


Ajay, that last one is superb. That's precisely the rendering style of the 100 MP that I really love.

Great stuff, people! Much too much of it to name every one or critique every shot. But I can't not mention sebboh, denoir, Ajay, David, gunzorro, Steve, and, of course, bifurcator. You guys turn flowers into pure poetry. My hat off to all of you!

So many good shots here it is hard to comment on all the good ones, but I want to at least say how much I like the following shots even though I am sure I am leaving out others deserving attention:

Mike Reid - I love the backlit orchid
BIF - so many nice shots, but I especially like those with the OM 38, Nikkor 55, and Minolta 50 macros, the phlox shot with the Nikkor 35-70, and the iris shots with the FD 300
Luka (denior) - Loved #2 of the dandelion out to seed, #7 of the black-eyed susans, and #10 of the blanket flower with the moth
davidearls - the phlox shot was terrific
sebboh - #2 of the water lily was especially nice
Ajay - loved #2 of the clematis on the mailbox and it is not surprising at all that #6 of the california poppy was published. It is phenomenal and really shows why I want to get the MP 100.

Going a bit back further in the archives. I don't know why, but there always seems to be some bug in the way when I try to take a picture of a flower
