I've forgotten the name of this particular flower. Its "tentacles" remind me of those on an octopus. I found it very hard to photograph. I don't know why, but had a hard time getting it in focus. Any suggestions?

Hi Hiroshi,

They are beautiful pics of a very colourful flower. I have a Dwarf variety at my house, and believe it the same flower as yours......"Tibuchina".

Hope you don't mind if I put a pic up in your thread, as I'd like to see the blooms side
by side.

Chad

jchad, thank you for your kind words and solving the mystery of the "Tibuchina". You are welcome to post you pics on my thread any time.Seeing your picture which is very sharp throughout the whole flower's depth, helps me to realize that I should have used the camera's macro without the 6T which has a shallow depth of field. The other alternative would be touse the 6T and my TCON 14B together which allows me to shoot from 24 inches and should have a better depth of field like the 5T, but I didn't think about it when I was shooting.
