Default A couple of flower shots

Each day, I drive by my neighbors front gardens which contain a huge variety of Lilys. Today I decided to stop and take a couple of images.
After taking a few, I realized it was just too windy and stopped. But here are a couple:







The 1st was taken using the 14-54mm with the 2nd and 3rd using the 50-200mm w/Ec-14 telecon.

Those are fun flowers to shoot, but the higher the magnification you go all it takes is the smallest of breezes to really mess things up. An EX25 would put you right in the middle of all that yellow and fill the frame, although you did pretty darn well in #2 and #3. You need a friend to stand over the subject with a white umbrella to diffuse the light and break the wind.

Thanks for the suggestions Greg. I obviously need to spend more time at this. My macro flower shots don't compare anywhere near as well to the ones I've seen posted by you and many of the other forum posters.

Oh well, it just gives me something else to work on.
