1 was taken with a newly bought microTamron 180mm indoor. 2 that follows was taken with a micro Nikkor 105mm which had a deeper depth of view, so more details on the petals.3 withthe Tamron.

2 with no exposure compensation while 1 and 3 with one stop less.

As a result of the longer focal length of the Tamron,more distance is possible between the lens and the flower despitehigh magnification, therebymaking it more flexible for flash unitsto be placed in more desirable positions round the flower.

Very nice compositions as always and pleasing softness

(#3 a bit unsharp though - wonder why)

I think the out-focused part is thesheathlike spathe enclosing the spadix, i.e. the fleshy clublike spike on which are the minute flowers, and also the minute flowers at thelower part of the spadix.

Since the focus was at the tip of thespadix and the depth of view of the 180mm is pretty shallow, the out-focusing has been caused. Perhaps, I can stop down the aperture to make a balance in this case; perhaps, to make the minute flowers on the whole spadix come in focus.

There is much room for improvement as far as using this new lens is concerned; I bought it for about 7 days. I hoped the lens could help me takepictures ofinsects among thebushes.

Anyway, thanks for viewing and giving comments.

The ISO of above photos were found to be 500 whichhad been used forshooting birdsbefore. So, the resolution was a bit loose.
