I tried harder ................ !

E-3 and 35mm macro.

Note the umbilical cord on the bottom seed, this is proving to be fascinating

Hi there Imageryone!

Great depth of field in both these images, capturing the full subject whilst still pushing the backgrounds out of focus. That is certainly one sharp lens you have there (and steady hands too unless you've set up your tripod!)

Keep them coming,

Cheers,

Ralph.

Yep - the 35mm is a little gem. My 2nd favourite lens.
I would be pretty chuffed if these were mine - No2 is SO GOOD!

So sharp I almost cut myself looking at them.

Also nicely composed and well lit. Very impressive.

Have to agree, these hold the interest a lot longer than the original one you posted, a drastic improvement. Well done
