    Gorgeous colours, Cindy.
    That 75'lux never fails to amaze me, such a wonderful lens and it shows its magic on mFT, too !

    Kind regards.

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Thanks, Bart. I like working with the E-PL1 and 75 lux. The E-PL1 makes focusing a breeze, and it has an easy interface for setting a custom WB (I put SET custom WB on a button). I use the X-rite Passport for setting the WB and making a custom camera profile. It really helps in capturing those reds and purples that can be so hard to capture when shooting flowers....and the 75lux is an amazing lens.

    Bart, I'd like to see more of your "magic dew" photos.

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Hi Cindy, indeed some colours seem impossible to get right, but you did a excellent job.
    Regarding dew: here's one I like (though the composition is so-so ...) that I posted a while back in the MRX forum.



    | tele-elmar 1:4.0/135mm | bellows-2 | visoflex-3 | m9 |

    Kind regards.

    Those are both beautiful, Roman. I like the POV in the first one, leading the eye right to the sunset.

    @Roman: welcome and what smashing tulip fields !
    Wasn't it for the mountains in background, I'd say this must be Holland ...

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    More dew or was it a little rain ?
    Anyway, this time I dusted off the G1 and attached it to the APO-Macro-Elmarit-R 1:2.8/100











    Thanks for viewing.

    Bart, Your flowers are really stunning. The Butterfly on the cone is amazing.

    Uwe, Flower Blend is so elegant. The colors are so subtle and sophisticated.

    Macro isn't my thing, but I had fun playing with my extension tubes a few months ago.

    Here's my contribution. It was shot in bright daylight, but looked better when processed dark.

    I'm really fascinated by your work! The flowers look so detailed, especially when I look at those raindrops... these are breathtaking! I also like the picture with the butterfly. Great work!
    I also try to take pictures of flowers, which I get from a florist in UK. He makes special floral breeds, which look totally beautiful I will share some pictures with you.
