Default The Green Flower - Rayonx 250

I saw this flower the other day as well, and just had to stop and snap. It seems that spring is finally springing over here in Normandy. This time I practiced with the RayonX250, but I'm not sure how in focus these are - so your comments and advice are required.

Hmmm, better then my attempt with the Raynox 250....

As is normal for you, pretty good composition, and no doubt hand-held, and still almost perfectly focused.

I think the plant is a hellebore

Dyane - I assume #1 is without the Raynox, and the rest are with? They look beautiful, you did a nice job!

I know the Raynox is hard to use, but I really like the aura of mystery that results from these extreme close ups. Well done, I'd say.

StefanS, the Raynox is Macro only, object to lens distance for focus is approx 80mm - 100mm , look at Google or Amazon it can be found for reasonable prices

These are all lovely shots Dyane, very sharp to me. I like the contrast of the greens.

Hi Saly - I think (if I remember correctly I wanted to get a for the record shot of the flower) No.1 is just a normal photo - the other 3 are taken with the Rayonx 250 lense.

Dyane-

You did a very nice job. Yes, to my eyes there is a bit of softness to the images.
