Always learning. Slowly. Trying to get it right, whatever that means.

  • I sure don't. :-( There are a few more (well, quite a few!) here: http://www.stefankaben.com/arboretum_09-15 Thanks all!
  • This makes me happy, Shirley, to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. Of course it also makes me realize how out of touch I've been around here; I didn't even know you were having issues. But ...
  • :-)
  • That first one really sets the right tone and the ordering is first-rate. The final one looks like puff pastries -- yum!
  • Replied in Canna Lily x3
    As usual, I have great difficulty showing an entire flower :-). 1/80. f13, 150mm, iso100 1/40, f16, 130mm, iso100 1/50, f18, 130mm, iso100 All taken with the EM-1 and 40-150 f2.8. Thanks for ...
  • Replied in A few
    We visited the National Botanic Garden today and, wonder of wonders, I got a bunch processed the same day. So I thought of posting some. Don't ask me what they are, other than flowers and such. :-) ...
  • WhyNot's suggestion of a photo of the garden in full junkyard context is a good one. Unfortunately, that hadn't occurred to me (though it should have, dangit!). Here's the closest I came, straight ...
  • and one more in the Close-Up thread. I took some household papers to a recycling yard for shredding this morning and it was the darndest thing; In the midst of your basic junk yard, with dump ...

  • Replied in Fly
    Fabulous, Phil! There are more dimples in those eyes than on a golf ball. (Yeah, I know they're lenses.) :-)
  • Replied in Dragon Fly??
    I gotta love a man who loves a challenge, Andrew. Well done.
  • Near Flagstaff, Arizona, a couple of weeks ago, the ospreys were having no more luck with trout than my cousin and I were. I swear, this one had a 90-pounder! :-D
  • Replied in Nice work, Milt
    Every time I see a green heron, bent forward as they strut along, I think of Groucho Marx. Of course, that says more about me than about anything else! :-D
  • These are wonderful shots, Robert, with great detail and composition. 35mm macro w/1.4tc?
  • Replied in DIF
    Only 27 years trying? Sheesh, where's your patience, Andrew? :-D
  • The background is the oof sidewalk in our front yard; I then went and blew it out. The shot is a focus stack using a tripod.
  • Thanks for the comments, Steve. Yes, I think something had a snack on that on that first lily, and I really liked the remaining contours it showed off. The last two were taken with the mZuika 60mm ...
  • Replied in DIF
    Thanks, Ken. For some reason, this one hovered in one spot for a very long time. That and the super-fast AF made the shot possible.
  • Thanks for the ID, Brad. I'm always too lazy to look things up. LOL.
  • Replied in DIF
    Yup, plus the 1.4tc for 210mm. Did you make it out to the sunflowers again?
