David, those are really wonderful, excellent sharpness and bokeh. What lens were you using for these?

Hi everyone, keep them coming. It's started with some really nice ones.

Tim and Daniel, we have some early outdoors in the garden, but this one is is a pot flower from the kitchen window. It's a true wild species, Hibiscus schizopetalus, originating fromeastern Africa. It's being used to hybridize (?) to get garden varieties, very obvious in Phil's shot.

Phil, your hibiscus is a hybrid, deeming from the foliage in the background i guess it's a variety called "Andersonii".

Jay, the flower itself is lit by the sun through the window. The background is a darkish wallpaper, further darkened in PP with the levels control (RSP and PSE3)

David, my favourite is your last one, but "child&mother" is a really nice idea. If you go back, do you think you can look for the scientific name for the last one?

Kjell

Thanks Tim - all these were with the Sigma 70-300 DG Macro, a good value lens.
Over the next few days I am going to try out my latest ebay purchase for some flower shots - a vintage Vivitar 2x Macro converter that I am going to usewith a Pentax M 50mm 1.7 - should be nice and sharp...

Thanks Kjell - I am at the Botanic Gardens fairly often; next time I'm there I will check whether this one has a nameplate with it...

Cheers,
DC

Here's one to enjoy, a wildflower. This is Hooker's Balsamroot, notice the different shaped leaves then normal Balsamroot. I usually go for a hike this time of year once a week to take wildflower pictures in the Cowiche Canyon, which is about 4 miles fromour home. It has 3 species of wild balsamroot and many other desert wildflowers.

This shot was taken with an oldM50 macro, which I pretty well keep on all the time in the Spring. As with Billy, I like to shoot at f11 or f16 most of the time, if the light permits. I actually took 50 shots on Wednesday afternoon, so had a good time - Bruce

Here are some unusual looking daffodils I found in a local park.
