Six Water Lilies, V1, 30-110
7

I stopped by the Botanic garden today for a little while and a lot of water lilies were in bloom. All were shot with the 30-110. It was a bright sunny day so I had to watch exposure. Thanks for looking.

Wow - beauties Paul! And that's even while viewing on a laptop with a crappy display.

You really did nail the exposures nicely. Were you using a polarizer?

Thanks Wayne! Didn't use a polarizer even though I had one with me, just a generous amount of negative exposure comp. Are you resisting the urge for the new 70-300?

Thanks Lon, but really, other than composition it's mostly the camera.

Superb shots of these lilies! Your 30-110 seems a lot sharper than both of mine.

Thanks Michael, I see you got the new 70-300; hopefully that will produce for you! I don't know if my 30-110 is different than others but I sure like it; lately my most used lens.

While the camera plays a roll, it can only see so much.  It is the eye behind the camera that puts it all together and that is where your ability as the photographer comes into to play;-)

I really like the 4th photo.

Great! I knew that the 30-110 is a valuable lens. I should use it more!
