Mini Petunia

by autumnlight

Taken in the rain and hand held, my first ever manual shot, i took about 6 and i thought this was the best, i thought i'd been using manual all along because i set the ISO and f settings myself, little do i know

Soft compo and good use of DOF. Your photos always bear something special and this allows me to recognize your "footprint"

exquisite creation, Maria, .. really "stunning" as said above, .. I particularly like the color harmony, .. but I'd opt for f9 even f10; .. I'm sure you've got why ..

question : is it taken with Pentax 55-300 DA ?

best wishes,

The lens was Tamron 70-300, it's the only macro lens i have at the moment, it does give a soft look.

That's an excellent shot, Maria! I love the light, compo, colour and managemant of DOF. That's not a bad lens at all, ha!

Hi Maria,
Sorry for having delayed my reaction,

Cause I imagine your pic stronger with DOF spanning to second flower too. I opted for modesty to suggesting f10. Id go up to f16. But youd have probably to use a pod.
