Pete,

Remember yor advanced technique to "flatten" flower pictures and your explanation thereof

What method did you use for these pictures?

Dear Torgny,
For plates 4 to 6, I used an f2.8 AFD 35-70mm Nikkor and for 1 to 3, I used an AFS 18-200mm DX Nikkor. I found a location where I could be a bit elevated from the sceneries I was shooting so that when I tilted the camera, less distortion would be caused to the objects being shot.
Thanks as always for viewing and giving comments.
Pete

this is a nice series.

i really enjoyed shot #1. nice lines that really suck you in, and good timing on the train to get it placed well.

Your compositional concern in each frame by arranging diagonals to the bottom and the top corners is pleasurably observed by the beholder! ...When combined with the considerable dynamic range from the S5pro, makes such a treat : )

Thanks guys for viewing and giving comments.
I forgot to tell, Bahadir, that the former 3 were taken with S5 Pro while the latter 3 were taken with a D700. Both are excellent cameras. Pete
