Rainy Day Close Up Captures

Yikes!  Rain has made it a little difficult to get out there and take a few close up captures.  Luckily, I have a robust weather sealed combination of an E3 and a 50-200.  Both of these captures were taken with that combination in a pretty good down pour.  I was pretty wet but the camera and lens didn't seem to complain. 





Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays!

Lantana for Lunch

Not sure what this is, but it sure liked Lantana flowers.

I just kept following it around until I got a shot I liked - took like forever. This little guy was fast! No crop, though I suppose I could have... anyway, it's just resized/downsized, slight contrast change, & a tad bit of sharpening. 70-300mm lens.

Queensland brush box

The Queensland brush box is a popular street tree here in Melbourne and I've never seen them bloom like the have this year. Obviously the weather has been much to their liking.

5 shot stack processed in LR4 and CS5.

I like the way the subject stands out against the background. Nice detail for a lens that isn't a specialized macro.

That's also a pretty clean result given you're shooting at 3200 ISO.

Re: Last summer macros

Beautiful detail - a stunning series overall. The E-5 with either of the Sigmas is a winning combination, especially in in such capable hands as yours.

Re: Beetle in a lilly

Not a whole lot of processing done to the image either, except clairity at +26, saturation at +17, luminense noise reduction at 25 and detail at default 50.  In camera noise reduction set to low or off, don't remember.  All in all, can't complain about how it came out considering the lens.

Re: Close-ups from India

Like the second.  Nice background and well composed with soft colour.

Re: I guess a Daisy specimen...

Lou" That a beautiful treatment , the flower looks rather like the flower on our spring Dogwood tree,  which was a "wild" tree but is now in many people's yard. Although winter here in NJ, that reminds me of Spring.
