Default Two-Toned

E-M5 and 75-300 M. Zuiko, with the aid of the 10mm Kenko extension tube. Good on the Dallas Arboretum for getting these things to keep blooming after so many close to, or over 100 degree days..

Damn! I wrote a reply here and somehow 'swiped' the MAC mouse the wrong way and lost my note........... seems to happen often anymore!

Anyway, what I said was, "I don't know how the arboretum does it with the heat, but this week they will get a chance to recover some with our weather change and RAIN."

The Kinko extender works really well with th 75-300, the detail here is amazing though personally I would prefer them not to be as dark.

I still haven't really used my Meike m43 extenders and the EX-25 only once recently, that with the FT 70-300.

Bob, is the entire image on all of these dark on your screen, or is it just the background? On a few of them I used the radial filter in ACR to darken the background intentionally and leave just the bloom at full brightness. I even added positive "whites" slider compensation to brighten the bright levels to near the right-hand edge of the histogram.

I may have to do something about profiling my monitor.

....oh, I should have said. Only the background is a bit dark, the subjects are quite bright and the look is wonderful.

I should have been more specific, You ended with exactly what you wanted.

Really pretty shots, Greg. I especially like #2 for both the colors and the composition.
