#60169 Very Pretty In Nikon Pink. :))

Posted by Tony on 03 February 2019 - 10:29 PM

This one turned out quite well given the challenges that I had to contend with.  The lighting in this place had overhead Florescent along with harsh sunlight beaming through.  I also had to crop a lot from right to left in order to remove an ugly branch.  I left the SS @1/60s, bumped up the ISO to 500 and set the lens @F/10. I had to add an inordinate amount of contrast in order reduce the amount of background glaze.  It may still have a skinch too much saturation, but as we all know, red and pink are real bears to get just right.  Hope you all enjoy and thanks a bazillion for viewing.  :))  Tony

 

This was handheld which is a very nice testament to the Nikon VR Lens.

I cannot tell a lie.  I did do some adjusting with colors and exposure, so hope all you fine folks enjoy this one.  I do like the way the D200 and the few Nikon lenses that I have, handled the reds for the most part.  I was just informed that this flower is a Camelia.

 

Cheers,

#59996 Your Best Photos of 2018

Posted by Tony on 26 January 2019 - 11:21 PM

Another beauty from my neighbor's awesome flower garden.  This was not in any way a set up.  As the saying goes "What I saw is what I got."  :))  It is definitely one of my favorites from 2018 as I have never seen one like this in the past.

 

Hope you all enjoy this one again and thanks very much for viewing.

This was taken in March of 2018 under some very threatening weather.  Surprisingly the flower and I both managed to survive quite well.

 

This was my first attempt at a Macro using my newly acquired Pentax-M 100mm Macro lens with Pentax K-50 body.  Anyone who really knows my wife and I, knows that we are incurable chocoholics and there was no way I could pass up taking a shot at the chocolateley looking center.  "Trust me, it was not chocolate." :((.

 

Thanks so much for viewing and hope you all enjoy.

This image was taken with my E-PL1 Olympus body (Now for sale) and 40~150mm Olympus telephoto lens.

 

I thought it turned fairly well, however I was overwhelmed by Tsunami of compliments I received.  The mistake in the photograph is that I did not raise the gear high enough to allow for more space in between the flower tip and the top of the viewfinder.  This is one reason the gear is for sale is that I am all thumbs when using this outfit as it just is not a good fit for me.  Anyway, hope everyone enjoys and thanks a million for viewing.
