4 tulip images with the 180mm 2.8...

These were all shot around f4 or f4.5 with the 180mm 2.8 AF. It's not a macro lens but focuses close enough to work in this type of situation.

Nice shots! I like no.2 especially; I get this feeling that the yellow flower is an individual, very alive and nice colors.

Rob, not sure if you know this ...

... but these images are in aRGB colourspace, which means that they would appear relatively more dull when viewed in browsers like IE.

Anyway, the pics are OUTSTANDING! The bokeh is excellent, and you've really processed the colours well. Looks like this is a nice lens for photographing flowers.

What's your website / PBase URL (email me if you prefer) - because I've blogged your posts (this and the cherry blossom one) at http://nikond70s.dpnotes.com/flower-photography-nikon-180mm-lens and would like to link to your homepage - hope this is OK with you.

Thanks!

Re: Rob, not sure if you know this ...

Thanks for looking David - I have always enjoyed your informative posts going way back to the early(!) D70 days.
I forgot to change the colour space on these (happens too often to me)
Thanks for pointing it out.
I would be happy if you linked my Pbase page: http://www.pbase.com/jagodkin

Looking at how disorganized my pbase site is, makes me realize I probably should make myself a proper site.
Thanks, Rob.

Link is done. Pbase ...

... was getting a bit limiting for what I wanted to continue doing (collecting DSLR-related links) and I've therefore moved to Wordpress blogs - but I'll continue my Pbase membership due to the exposure it's so good at getting.

Beautiful flower macros

Very interesting perspective and lighting. The sharpness (at least the resized pictures that you posted look very sharp) and bokeh are outstanding. Perhaps you could push the saturation up a little bit, it would make them even more attractive.

What I don't like? Picture #4. The only flower that's in focus isn't very well lit compared to the other blurred two. I find it a bit distracting.
