Tulips often have vivid colors and several of these I have posted earlier. Now I show two more subtly colored tulips, first a pink one:

and second a white one with just a bit of pink overtone:

A very characteristic plant is the Crown-of-Thorns or Christ plant (in Dutch: Christusdoorn, Latin: Euphorbia milii) which has flowers shaped completely different from nearly all other plants I know and these are shown in the following two pictures. The first taken with Dynax7d, Sigma 105mm Macro at f/11, 1/60s, indirect flash:


The second taken with Dynax7d, Sigma 105mm Macro at f/16, 1/60s, indirect flash:

Well done Ian -- your second is a standout for me.

@ Confusedapollo -- I would crop in a bit tighter on most of yours, but nice work also.

Narcissus?


This looks like another of those 'Crown of Thorns' thingies...

@BobJ: Nice pictures! The first is indeed a narcissus and the others are definitely Crown of Thorns flowers.

If you search Google you'll see that these exist in a number of varieties with differently coloured flowers.

Some tulips caught between two snow showers during a visit to the Keukenhof gardens last week.
Shot using Dynax 7D and 85/1.4, EXIF in the image, JPG resized & framed from JPE straight out of the camera. I like the effect that (accidentally) the shallow DOF created with the focus on the tulips in the foreground.

@confusedapollo: nice pictures of these flowers

Just a question: in #2 there seems to be heavy chromatic aberration and somewhat less in #1 and #3: what lens did you use for these pictures and also: how much crop did you apply?

It does not detract from the quality of the pictures but it is somewhat amazing to have this as visible as it is in these pictures.

Thanks Brettania. I will attempt to crop those pictures to see the before and after.

Pauljg, thanks for the feedback. I am new to DSLR, well, already 5 months since i bought my A100. So, The Chromatic Abberration is new term to me. I always though it is the out of focus effect. Gladly i check out the meaning on the web.. I guess I learn somehting new today.

To answer your questions.
1. I used the Minolta 28-80mm Macro lens
2. I also added 2 magnifying lenses, Hoya +4 and Hoya +2, the combination of these lenses created the effect on the pictures.
3. No cropping was done to the pictures, only slight contrast enhancement.


thank you for the feedback and will continue to learn...

Best
