Default last weeks

Nothing else than the things that kept me busy last week.
We're having great weather, it is the sunniest and driest autumn I remember. (even a bit to dry)

#1: Boletus edulis or cep.

Exposure Time: 1/179
F Number: 9.5
ISO Speed Ratings: 400
Focal Length: 105
Sigma 105mm.

#2: Viola although it's great weather, the mornings have started with a lot of fog. Giving enough drops.

Exposure Time: 1/125
F Number: 5.6
ISO Speed Ratings: 100
Focal Length: 50
Tamron 17-50 f2.8

#3: A view on the garden of a castle near my work.
3 shots at -2ev 0 +2ev, then hdr merged with nik hdr pro.

F Number: 5.6
Focal Length: 30

#4: A rose, a focus stash of 7 handheld images using photoshop.

Exposure Time: 1/179
F Number: 6.7
ISO Speed Ratings: 140
Focal Length: 105
Sigma 105mm
7 shots.

#5: Playing with light, these are 2 merged shots, one with flash, one without. I only used the flashed image to lighten the part under the cap.

2 shots
Exposure Time: 1/3
F Number: 6.7
ISO Speed Ratings: 100
Focal Length: 105
Sigma 105mm

#6: Fly (8:1 macro - or micro shot), a combination of 25 pictures focus-blended with helicon focus.
This is the first result of my first homebuild macro rig.
Now don't expect much of it because it consists of a part of a broken cd-player and lego's.
I'll post some shots of it with the next results (if I'm not to embarrassed about the lego part )

Exposure Time: 1/2
F Number: 6.7
ISO Speed Ratings: 200
Focal Length: 105
K-5 + PzAF 2x teleconvertor + 68mm extention tubes + sigma 105mm (at 1:1) + Raynox 250dcr + Raynox 150dcr

Cheers

Ronny

Some lovely images Ronny.

I just love #4 of the rose (and I am definitely not a flower photo man) ! Thogh I don't get the exposure time 1/179 ?!?

The shot of the (dead ?) fly is wonderful, great work indeed !

The viola and the rose are both great. I really like that Photoshop effect. Also love the fly.

Can't wait to see the home-made macro rig - sure some impressive results with "fly face!"

Others are great too, showcasing both your photographic and your PP talents - I especially enjoyed the Viola - lovely detail in the blooms, fine soft background...

Thanks Kevin,

yep the fly is dead, I don't think I can make that many shots with a live one.
And I didn't notice the 1/179, I just copy the settings from a chrome plugin. I do know that it was 1/180.

Thanks Les,

last year we had snow around this time to, and rather cold weather, now it doesn't even look like freezing.

I simply don't understand the weather anymore.

Cheers

Ronny

Thanks Mole,

Concerning the macro rig I'm at this point at the 0.3 alfa version of it.
And it still is made out of lego's. I'm planning to rebuild it but before I'll post a shot of it.

I've got to see this - though my hubby's comment was something about how the kid feels about losing his/her Legos. On the other hand, I remember visiting Legoland in (I think) the Netherlands and being fascinated by the model city built with Lego blocks - it didn't look like it.

Our weather is a bit strange - last Sunday I was shoveling snow. This Sunday I was walking around in short sleeves, even at home. Down in the San Fernando Valley it was in the high 70's F (around 25 C) at lunchtime.
