I really want to see more : sandy patterns, striae, and maybe a gleam of sunshine to reach near the real.Pls check your focus, focusing viewfinder and screen and your eyeglasses. Goodluck.

gotta say focus looks fine, and i find most of doc's pics more pleasing than most of yours contas. we all have our stylistic preferences though.

fine orchid pics.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt that his tone is due to lost in translation. And there is always that "hide me" button.

To me, orchid picture is harder to make an impression than other flowers. Maybe Ronny's split toning technique can be used here.

A few of mine:

A900 + Tokina 90/2.5



A900 + Pentax A 50/1.2



A900 + Sony 135 STF



Pentax K10D + Voigltander 125



Pentax K10D + Tamron 90

Contas is correct in noting that these Orchid images are flat. After driving 6 hours to one of my favorite places to shoot flowers, I realized I had left my macro light accessory at home. So the natural light through the greenhouse glass degraded the tone in these shots. In addition, Leica lenses in my experience tend to render a more painting like image due in part to less micro contrast than say a similar Zeiss lens.

I certainly don't mind the criticism....The delivery needs a bit of tweaking though

Peace to all and let's move on. Spring is coming

Sorry that i am *really* late to the party, but I just now saw the comments and discussion between Michael (mpmendenhall) and RustyBug. I have until recently not been a big fan of printing. I mean I do, but I did it mostly for the size. Some images really are better big.

In any case, what I discovered, after purchasing a Canon Pro9000 MkII when they were nearly giving them away recently, is that the color gamut of a print can be much larger than a monitor. I suppose I knew that, but after I started making prints on this printer, I realized just how much more could be had in a print. Maybe the problem is that the prints from the typical online printer really isn't all that good? Or maybe I wasn't paying enough attention...

Anyhow, I don't claim that a print is sufficient to capture the original red that Michael saw, but it occurred to me that perhaps it could at least get closer.

Mystery Zeiss Jena lens - no name on it. 1:1 or more magnification macro lens without iris. High resolution, high micro contrast.
