The new office I work at has afresh floral arrangement delivered every Monday for the week to sit in the reception area just inside the front door.....a weeklybuilt-in photo assignment if there ever was one! Here's this weeks set, taken with the E510 and 70-300 with the EX25 extension tube.

The ceiling is around 10 feet high. I used my FL50 flashwith a Lumisphere diffusor fitted. I left the frosted, inverted dome off so a lot ofthe light would go straight to the ceiling and diffuse further, eliminating all shadows..

Great shots Greg. I love close ups of flowers, and those are super examples of how unique a simple subject can be.

Hi Greg,

great shots:cool:... that 70-300mm lens and ex 25 tube combo continue to impress. thanx for posting. At the pricethat the ext. tube is currently being sold, it's really a great deal..............I gotta get one of them.

And thanksfor explaining the use of the flash and diffuser.Their usecertainly added a lot to the IQ.

What can one say except that you have another set of winners. Really excellent shots Greg

Is it just me...? Or is there something vaguely disturbing about a naked pistil...
