Using the morning light

After a fierce squall this morning the sun broke through and provided some nice low light - so a few snaps were taken at maximum aperture with the D-FA*85/1.4....

Well taken John and for braving the weather. I was hiding under the duvet this morning ignoring a downpour until the last possible moment.

I should have taken your lead and picked up my camera this morning too. The light you've captured is lovely and I particularly like the composition of the second picture. Are you growing onions, leeks or garlic?

The leaves ( #3 ) are the highlight for me John, just superb

3 is good, but 1 and 2 are superb. Love the OOF aspects of them.

I like the blur and shadows on the first 2 photos

#3 for me - wonderful presentation of the light, shadows and leaves, plus no distractions in the background.

A delicate little set LennyB. Interesting things are happening in the bokeh balls and shapes in 1, 2 works quite well as a group portrait, and the shadow play in 3 is intriguing. All well seen.

The sunlight in the mornings recently has been wonderful - as these demonstrate.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thank you all for taking the time to comment - for me these are an example of the lighting and timing coinciding, all 3 shots are of very ordinary subjects but in those few minutes I captured better images than in do in a few weeks sometimes

Nigel - these shoots actually belong to some Dutch Iris, they do look similar to bunching alliums I have to agree
