Re: Big Dandilion

Thanks Lou,

Your high contrast version shows off the details of the dried flower. This is actually a seed stage.

I will go back to these with the 50 mm f/2 and the Flash Ring and try to stop down the aperture even more. The right ss - 1/160 is what I used here - will still provide background light and color. The SRF-01 also fits the 14-54 mm lens.

The 14-54 at 25 mm provided close enough focus. A macro lens wouldn't improve on that, except the 50 mm macro lens is a bit sharper. I'd still want a similar FOV. Shooting at 50 mm would change the AOV, narrowing the background. That may be good or maybe not, depending on what is back there.

Thannks again for your comments and critique. That's what I need.
