Re: Favorite flower of the month , Sept . 2020 .

Beautiful as always, MRP!

You know, I almost bought the Sigma 70-300 DL. However, the seller wasn't very enthusiastic about its image quality and I changed my mind at the last moment. Bought a Tamron 70-300 instead. I have yet to take a decent macro with it, but I'm very pleased with the overall image quality. Here's a quick snapshot:

Re: Favorite flower of the month , Sept . 2020 .

Thank you , Alex_Virt . Quite decent one . On the contrary , ` returned a Tamron 70-300 within a couple of hours with a small penalty . There may not be much to it . These are some what statistical . Happy times with your Tamron ... .

Nice one MRP!

This is a late-season rose taken a few days ago from my neighbor's garden.

I just trimmed my rose bushes last week.

Re: Pink, yellow and red

Remco, nicely done. OMG I wish I still had my old Contax lens'. I had the Contax RTS (something) camera and the 28mm, 50mm and the 200mm...not sure about the 200mm it could have been a 135mm or 150mm. It has been a long long time.

Great photos, Tom W
