p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Macro with Canon 70/300 L IS


I know, you're thinking macro? Macro with a 70/300 L IS? It wasn't me that put the macro setting on the lens, it was Canon. Besides, how much macro can you get with a 3.9 ft. minimum distance. This how much. Taken at Ledew Gardens in Mokton MD Saturday. I thought this might be a magnolia, but now I don't think so. Does anyone care to identify this?

While I wouldn't normally consider this lens for extreme close-up, in this case sharpness is good, exposure was done at 1/320 at F11, ISO 320 handheld.

Yes Aboud, that is a Magnolia. You did a wonderful job with the exposure control. That lens does make a great close focus/macro, it's a wonderfully versatile lens. For this photo I would a simpler background so that the subject isn't competing for my eye

One of my favorite lens. I never go out w/o it.
You did good on this one, with some fine detail on the petals. As Tim said a clean bg would improve the composition
