This is the same kind of daylily I posted the other day... only without the shadows. I don't like the composition as well and I know I needed a bit more DOF, but it turned out OK I think. The flower was also a bit more faded than the other one. This was taken inlight shade on Aperture Priority, 85mm, 1/1000 sec, f/4,ISO:100. I hope totry a diffuser today if I have time.



And I mis-identified these buds as 'Tiger Lilies'... I believethey are actually 'Oriental Lilies'... or possibly 'Asiatic Lilies' (I'll find the proper ID eventually):?. Shot on Aperture Priority, 85mm, 1/300 sec, f/4, ISO:100. Also shot in light shade.

Both nice gracie, do you know the name of the first one? I generally take a number of photos @ different f-stops to make sure the whole bloom is in focus, and not much more.

Thanks to all.

No, I don't know the name of the first one. It reminds me of one called 'Chicago Petticoats'... but there's no way to know for sure since there's a million different ones that look VERY similar. It was given to me by someone who was thinning hers out, so I have no clue. I do usually shoot with a range of apertures... but I still always end up just a hint short of where I need to be.

These daylily shots are really nice: great colours and really sharp too, nice work!

John.
