    Both were taken with my 18-70 DX Nikkor.

    Taken here in Juneau, Alaska.



    Taken in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico.



    I really need a macro lens!

    Some shots I took today. The common theme seems to be isolating the flowers from the background. Camera: Pentax *ist DS, Sigma 18-125 lens.

    First a Hollyhock:

    This was shot at 125mm, f/16, which is normally not an aperture known for its narrow DOF! It works this time because a) the background is basically featureless sky, and b) because I'm pretty close to the plant so even the few visible trees still are fuzzy and c) the 125mm is fairly long.

    Various bugs on Chicory flowers:

    125mm, f/5.6, a much more traditional isolating aperture.

    A daylilly with a just visible spiderweb attached:

    125mm, f5.6. The original was a bit on the bright side, I reduced the gamma (midlevels) a bit. The dark background really helps here!

    And finally an Evening Primrose that was flowering during the day:

    125mm, F5.6. I positioned the flower so that the background was a dark patch undeneath the nearby bridge.

    All pictures have been processed with what Photoshop calls "Levels" and Corel Photopaint "Contrast Enhancement". This is the equivalent of choosing your grade of paper and exposure time in the darkroom. Also, since this is a digital camera, all images have been sharpened with Unsharp Mask.

    I would like one too! My 18-70 cropped down a bit. JPG Quality cut in half to fit.

    Reds

    Hi all,
    I have thought it was just my camera choices but reds are really squirrely on my D50 - but they were worse with the FZ20. Don't remember what it was like with a film camera. Beautiful pictures all!
