Loads of colour and detail here v.nice - were these out of the camera or how much pp going on? What lens were you using? Hope Jess not jealous of the attention you giving these flowers!

Hols52 asked:

"were these out of the camera or how much pp going on? What lens were you using?"

Thank you Graham, you always have time for other folks pictures, you are a great asset to dyxum.

I only shoot RAW Graham so nothing you see here of mine is "out of the camera" as in 'unprocessed' "how much pp going on?" I truly cannot answer that Graham, all pictures are individual. However, all the usual suspects, local contrast enhancement, a boost to colour saturation, sharpening of course. It is a rare picture that cannot be improved a little (or a lot) by a 'sprinkling' of photoshop dust.

edit: Oh, lens was the Tamron 90mm Di macro

To my old eyes neither the bee (except the wings and toward the rear of the bee) or the lavender appear to be sharp and in focus? - though might just be my eyes and the fact it is morning!!!

Graham

Edit - by the way have just looked on Flickr and sharpness seems better on there!

Hi Graham!

Well, to my tired eyes at least parts of the plant looked in focus as well ... maybe just by-products of sleep deprivation :)

Can you see what I meant by the difference between the flickr post and here? I think the bee is sharp throughout on flickr and at least four if not five of the flower heads are likewise. Negelected to say amongst all this that I really like the composition

I think i see the difference (but im on an ipad, hard to judge here) - might as well be that i posted here the image too big, and a certain unsharpness shows therefor up. will later look at the original file on my computer, to see if its just the flickr treatment or in fact unsharpness which becomes the more visible the larger the image is.

The formum app has reduced the size to 900 x 900 for viewing (the 1024 x 1024 version is too large). It may look better if you link to the 800 x 800 version on Flickr.

Cheers... Brian

Hi Brian!

Thanks for the info! I replaced it now with the 800x800 version in my original post, i believe it looks better now. Thanks again :)

Blue flower -had looked very nice and now startingto lose individual flower heads. Thought slightly different to get picture of the flwoer "past its best". Also, took picture with sigma 8-16 at 16mm and close up - pic 1 then cropped to get different perspectves but also shows very well how sharp this lens is.

Pic 1 - Original pic



Pic 2 - Crop to keep subject and other flowers around it



Pic 3 - Crop to remove all apart from same type of flower



Pic 4 - This time cropped the opposite way, leaving behind one old seed head to balance left of picture



Pic 5 - Final crop - really just to show how sharp this lens is



Really like this lens, IQ, speed of focus, colour are all on a par or better than the sony lenses I own. And of course when I am using it for more "typical" wide angle shots it really excells. Should remember to take it out more!!
