One of the blooms on the first flowering of a plant I grew from seeds from an old agapanthus.

Well done for growing it from seed. Pity about the crop since there is a whole lot of noise in there - made worse by the very high ISO. Could you not have reduced it to say, 1/60th @ISO200 (or even 1/30th @100). The K1's shake reduction can cope with that.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Many thanks for your comments, Giulio and David

I chose the setting since despite the K1ii's good shake reduction it was the large flower head atop a pencil thin stem that was shaking !
I will look into noise reduction methods however.

Thanks again
Best regards
Peter
