Could be clover, I am not quite sure which...

Two versions.

Second one with 5D3, 100m Macro, 1/400s f/2.8 at 100.0mm iso400.

Re: Meadow Flower

Great stuff! Lovely bokeh and colors, Yes, a clover.

Did you apply some tilt in these shots?

Cheers,
Eyvind

Thank you.

If I remember correctly, yes, just a tiny little bit in the image taken with the TS-E.

Re: Fall florals, close to home

Lovely light in #1 and #2. I like the 'rear' view in #2.

The HDR is too garish for my taste. Did you do the processing yourself or is it an in-camera HDR?

Regards,
Mike

Re: Fall florals, close to home

Thanks, Yes - I agree, perhaps I pulled too hard on the levers in Photoshop for the HDR

I tried the in-camera HDR, too - but since this was hand-held, the camera-automatics didn't do too well, on e.g. slightly moving leaves. Got much better results in CS5 (and, alas, many more levers to pull by my CS-incompetent fingers!

Cheers,
Eyvind

Lovely shots Eyvind. Yes, the HDR is a bit oversaturated but otherwise fine

Re: Hydrangia

Nice, but would have been much nicer with less or no HDR effect.
