Default A Stroll Around The House

looked outside and the weather was great, so I thought I'd treat myself a stroll around in the garden hoping nature had something to show.

I found my old Sony point-n-shoot camera and I realized it had a Close-Focus Mode and I had never gotten around to test it...

So I put it up against my D50 with Sigma 50 macro lens.

And I gotta say, it fared very well...I was amazed at the range it could manage to focus.

Pic Number One
Here's a HDR of a Daisy taken with the D50


And the middle exposure

So many good pics. Picture Number 2 (I never thought DOF on a single flower can be quite alluring) and anemone (I love the deep greens and blues up and down the white flower) are my favorites.

thanks vv for your oh, so kind words !

This set makes me think that HDR is not something to go for, close-up and flowers wise, unless there's a general background going on that can help with depth and such..

Hopefully I'll find more places to scout for flowers and try out if HDR works or not.

Love the butterfly, I haven't seen this species before.
