Haven't shot any flowers for ages , needed a flower fix. Hadn't had much luck with Chamelias in the past. Walked out the front door yesterday and there they were. So lets try again ,I thought . For some reason I think to maintain the fragility of these flower you have to put them out of focus. Tony.

Hi Kathleen, Thanks. I tried something a little different ,lens wise. I put a kodak ektanar 2x tele lens in front of .7 diopter lens. If you can find one of those lenses they have a really nice color fidelity and softness to them.In fact after taking that shot I thought "what a great portrait set up with a smaller diopter."
Was home alone, so to try it, unfortunately old man spencer had to do the sitting, but he just wouldn't sit. Regards Tony.

Lovely impressionistic bots Tony. One of my favorite aspects of the LB is that soft feel you can get by focusing just short of the subject--esp. at f2.8 or f2

Nicely done.

Thanks Barnett, I totally agree with you , Unfortunately I have a Nikon and more often than not it seems to Backfocus. But Nikons do that. LOL. Tony.
