    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Uwe and Angus - those are great.

    Here are some dead flower shots (apologies to anyone who's seen them on the M9 thread).

    Taken with the M9 and the 75 'cron.

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Lovely flowers everyone. A bit early here for flowers so just some leaves for now and in the case of this False Hellebore the blossom is rather anticlimactic.

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Carl - I love your shot.
    Bart - that's beautiful - love the pink and blue in the background.

    We're in Cornwall at the present, so, of course, the Camelias in the garden have just died

    Knorp - Beautifully framed shot and gorgeous color. False Hellebore is a different genus (Veratrum viride) and yes I've been re-working the shot.

    Jono - Luscious color in those blossoms.

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Not sure if this qualifies as a 'flower shot' but I like it a lot.
    Took this in bright sunlight and had to prevent blowing the highlights, hence the underexposed look. But this way the flowers really pop !

    Kind regards.

    Jono, Gorgeous. I like the contrast of brown paper against the bright tulips. It is a very interesting composition.

    Both are beautiful Bart, but I am really drawn to the composition and delicate colors of the second one. The little red buds are icing on the cake.

    Robert, They are Sedum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedum).

    They make wonderful subjects for UV photography:

    Yes, it's either Provia or Astia.

    WOW... Excellent Faux macro. Maybe I can do Macro with a future M9...And sell my DSLR when I get it. I do love Macro work. My 90 Cron goes to 1m, is that enough?
    How close did you focus before the crop?

    Hi Peter,
    for true macro, experts may differ here, the 90 macro-elmar is the lens.
    But to get real close and higher reproduction ratios with the M-system, you need a visoflex and even the bellows.

    Regarding the distance to that tulip, I guess it was somewhere between 0,75 and 0,85 mtr, very close to it's minimum focussing limit. Here's the orginal shot.

    Kind regards.

    Yeah, that's why I have a 105mm Macro for my DSLR....
    But, Still, excellent image... I saw this some where else the other day.... Oh Yeah... A DPR Leica Challenge hosted by Pbase....

    My only concern with an M9 is back focus with most of the lenses I own... the 28/2 Ultron and 35mm/1.4 Nokton.. My 50/1.1 Nokton, I believe is ok, it is a later version I think. But, it may year before I can get an M9. I need to sell a Decorative Crystal Frog collection I inherited to help finance it.

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    Very special close-ups, Jono. There is always something about them, but it could be me ... Must be so convenient to get real close to your subjects without aid like with the M-system. If one could only afford an s2 plus macro-lens ...

    Re: Some Flower Shots

    HI Bart
    Thank you!
    That rose is gorgeous. Yes, wouldn't it be lovely to afford an S2, but you do a splendid job with the M9 and the bellows. Personally I'm much too lazy to both with anything as sophisticated as a tripod, let alone a Visoflex.

    all the best

    @jono: I must be crazy to get up that early (5 o'clock ), but I love to capture the morning's dew.
    Here's the same flower (a little cropped) just 13 minutes earlier. I think it's a tad too dark overall, but I like the deep reds here.

    All the best.
