Nice, could use a bit more DOF in a couple though.

Very Nice. Great bokeh in the first picture. There is really no reason for someone looking for a nice macro to not consider the Tamron.

Actually, I prefer the unique character of the images with the DoF as shot. Really focuses attention on the opening of the buds. The yellow bud against the white background is a bit too washed out for my liking; however, the red buds are all very nicely done!

I really like the yellow rose with the delicate curving leaf, very picture worthy. I think Tom is right,though,a little more dof would be good.

Thank you everyone for your comments.
The yellow rose was a challenge as it's background is a bright cream fence only inches away. How would I make this better and how do you suggest I increase the DOF ?

In your first shot f 4.5 seemed to give quite a bit more depth of field than either shots 2 or 3. I would probably try it at f5.6 and see if that still isolates it from the fence. Of course, you could always tape a black piece of paper to the fence and give the shot a really dramatic look.

Really like all of them, but number one seems to stand out most. Great series, I can see you are really getting some use out of that Tamron.
