Default My Girlfriend's Roses are Popping

With the E5 and 50-200 SWD, sometimes by itself (#'s 1 and 6), sometimes with the EC20 (#'s 2, 3, 5 and 7) and sometimes (#4) with the EX25, was the perfect combination to shoot them.

Indeed, they are, Greg. Looks like you took full advantage of it, too! Glad to see you picked up on a couple of my favorites. You got some nice angles and nice, clean shots.

Hi Greg,

Quite a variety of beautiful roses. And, your images do them justice. I've always been partial to yellow roses. very nice.

Very nice all of them, but I really like the last one. I had one in our garden a few years ago just the same color, but with my incredible green thumb I killed it in one year : )

great shots Greg. Do you use mounted flash? Or off-camera?

Hi, John. Thank you.

Just ambient light, waiting for the sun to go far enough west the plants were all in open shade.
