Booo. I clipped the whites just a little bit. Still like the shot, tho.

5D2 + OM21


Very nice. Flowers in full sunshine are often very tricky to expose properly, esp. if the surrounding scene has a wide DR. You could have protected the highlights on the white petals more but at the expense of the shadows and the blue sky would have become grainier, etc... Basically you have to bracket and blend exposures to get an optimum result.

Thanks all. Bracketing would have been tough on that day - wind was kind of whipping them pell mell. Just a touch of underexp. would have worked, maybe...

Mat - really like your white coneflowers! Gorgeous bokeh.

white cone flowers photo is great

these two are taken with the Nex7 and the ZM 50 1.5 wide open with a helicoid adaptor. Funny little lens but i like it, very difficult to take a sharp pic wide open, it has a very dreamy ( motion blur ) look but stopped down it gets very sharp!

@jay tieger: I love the lighting on that shot. It really shows off the color of those upper petals.

How is it lit? Thanks.

Thanks, but I can take little if any credit for the lighting....
Sometimes the subject does it all
...I just used the on-board flash...

@Jay: I was wondering if it was that or window behind you. The light is clearly from above, but it doesn't have that stark contrasty look that often accompanies a flash. Perhaps because of the black background?

Thanks.

@ucphotog....

One of the nice aspects of the 40D is that I found its pop-up flash to be less harsh than others...

....if you look close at the petal on the top left you can see the direct shadow of the flash on the bottom petal...

I think the dark background enhances the soft appearance...and shooting with the 135 had me at a distance from the flower and that helped to soften the light...

Window light had little if any effect on the shot...

I actually use other lenses as well.... sometimes.

25/2 ZE

f/5.6


f/11


50/2 ZE

f/2.5 (yes, I first left the f/2.5 from the CV but I actually aperture bracketed the shot and I liked this one the best even though it's not in perfect focus)


f/8


Ah well, can't deny the CV 125 gets around 40% of all shots
f/2.5


f/5.6
