Ok, here is another of my shots from the DL2, been resized and can't remember if I sharpened it or not! lol!

I quite like this one, nicely exposed, nice colours and shallow depth of field so nothing to detract from the flower.

Comments welcome of course.

Sorry, should have included lens info. It was my sigma 70-300 f4 - 5.6 shot in macro mode.

I have no idea what the name of that flower is, but I find it interesting also. This was my version from last week. I think it was taken with the DA 50-200.

very nice, Alison... I think it's always interesting to see flowers from other regions!

The flower is a nice one... it's a Kniphofia, originates from South Africa.

Thanks for the information, Kjell. I love to wander around the Botanical Gardens and they don't have labels on many of their specimens. It's nice to find out where some of the more unusual (at least for us) flowers come from.

Thought this might be a good place for a couple of flower pictures

First is one shot with an SMC Pentax M 50mm f1.7 mounted on a Takumar-A 2X teleconverter and shot at f2.8, thus the very limited DOF(did a levels adjustment and some mild sharpening before resizing):



The second shot, of a bud as yet unopened, was shot with the Sigma 24-135 at 135mm. This image was cropped to vertical from a horizontal capture. It took a little more care in adjustment with this image:



BTW Alison and Harriet, great shots.

nice pics all, here's my nw ontario contribution from this morning. blue flag (wild iris) shot at f/13, 1/8 sec., at ISO 200 with the sigma 70-300. hardest part was finding a place solid enough to stand and set the tripod. used a little levels and sharpening and cloned out one dust spot.
