On photo star lilly in the Lilies challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, George Veltchev, on placing second in this 'Lilies' challenge, with your beautiful picture of these liliums. You have achieved an interesting contrast between the white and yellow petals, and the dark brown stamens rising to catch the attention of passing insects. Against that is the background of the dark green leaves. A very striking image.
RuthC :-)

Thanks for the wonderful comments RuthC and for the note bellow of course ! :)

Can't afford a Hasselblad? .. You still won't win one no matter how good your entry might be ...cause ... you must be primarily a professional !!! ... exquisite way to preserve the legendary snobbish decorum of the great Hasselblad brand !

In reply to:

George Veltchev: fake .. but still effective !

SpartanWarrior no bad feelings mate and I really wish you well , but this doesn't change my suspicion . First of all, It is impossible in my view to achieve this depth of field where the tree and the moon are in such an immaculate sharpness achieved at f/8 with 500mm lens .. no way mate .... well ... there is a way of course if the shot was taken from a huge distance and later the image was heavily cropped . If that's the case ... apologies ! However ... the next thing which bothers me, even more, is the clouds behind the moon ... these are heavy thick clouds mate ... the evidence for this is the bright halo which surrounds the moon from its half down and let's assume that around the bright area there are no clouds . Then ... what is happening with the upper part of the moon ?! In any case, the clouds should be located in front of the moon ... Isn't it always like that? ... and if they are ... they should overlap albeit gently the light of the reflected moonlight ...agree ?!

This should be the winner ...clearly .. no doubts ! Well done mate , this is one truly spectacular entry ! Bravo !!!

A glorious depth of field at f/1.4 ! I wish that Sigma builds a 200mm f/2 one day ! The Canon equivalent is horribly expensive !
