I´m waiting for my 35-70 f4 macro Minolta lens that I bought in Canada.I used my old70-210 f4 zoom with macro capability to do this shot. I hope to get better macros with the 35-70 lens.

I like this one, because the colours are bright and vibrant, I would love to see those photos when your new lens arrives.

Hi Belibeli, it could be my monitor, or the fact that my eyes are tired(to early in the morning), but it looks to me as if the yellows of the flower have been clipped, leaving no detail.

pleasing image in general, and i can't wait to see what you can do with the 35-70 macro!

it almost appears a bit oversharpened, the edges seem a bit unnatural, or its just my monitor or an optical illusion from the color contrast? anyone else see that?

i think you could get creative with this shot and maybe soft focus it for a dreamy look maybe?

I have to agree with Dustin. The edges look artificial which is unfortunate because it is a nice shot.

i bet the harsh edges could be fixed with the blur tool.

also, if one were to play with the shadow/highlights a bit, the flowers would have

a better chance to not be so contrasted against such a dark (looks black to me)


lovely shot, beli.

looking forward to more like this!
