Hibiscus: second chance

Our plant produced a splendid bloom just recently and I decided to rig up a black background to do it justice. Diffuse northern light.

That's really pretty, it looks super against the black background.

Very nice indeed

I notice the exif says 50mm focal length so I'm guessing that this is another very effective advert for the ZD 50mm f/2.0

Cheers,

Re: Hibiscus: second chance

I am well pleased with this one. The bloom had died the next day, so I must have caught it at exactly the right moment.

I just got a 12x16 print of image this back from Photobox and it is pretty good. Good enough to make me wonder how much bigger it could go with more agressive sharpening

Oh, yes, this is indeed another one down to that fabulous 50mm Zuiko macro. I can forgive it having a concave front element(!) when it makes images like this..
