I have a strange feeling this will be one highly popular thread Big Grin

Starting with a simple one..

    The garden is looking very tired now so looked back to the summer. Here is an orchid photographed around the Italian lakes back in June. Taken using a Canon 100mm macro lens on a Canon 60D. 1/20 sec at f 5.6. I have cloned out a bit of damage on the main flower head, selectively brought up the contrast a little and applied a vignette to lighten the background a bit more.

Interesting image. Did you choose f2.8 because you were looking for the shallow depth of field or was it to keep the shutter speed to something you could hand hold? With no visible background you could easily have reduced the aperture and brought the whole of the flower into focus. Great detail in the flower though and interesting composition. Overall - I like it.

Used my Fugi finepix (not an SLR) with the Program setting ISO 800. THis is a flower I could not resist because of the water droplets

Great shot for a compact, “Ivan”, especially at such an ISO. Good job.

Great, I would clone out the "Blobs" on the right side. Ed.

Thank you!

It was because of a DOF. I wanted it shallow and focused on the center of the rose to show off the texture and the complexity as much as possible. Also, with any other setting background would be visible/textured and I wanted to avoid that.

This is a small part of a wild flower meadow, photographed in August this year. Settings on Pentax K-5: 40mm, Aperture Priority f/9, 1/2000s. Strange settings as I carelessly hadn't checked that the ISO was left on 1000. But on the positive side, there should be no camera shake or wind movement of the flowers!

Now I know what shocking pink looks like. Was it really that vivid?

You can’t beat a wild flower meadow. Beautiful. Next year, if you can return, try getting down lower, almost level with the flower heads.

My Canon T5i with a 100 mm Macro. I probably had a 4x magnifying lense on it as well but I can't remember. I had 18 MP to work with and I cropped it rather severely to get the image. Hand held at ISO 100 and 1/320. Took quite a few shots to get just a few in focus and this was the best of the bunch.
