  • What in the garden....

    Once again playing with my new toy a lens I don't use often (and should) is the 35mm macro, had it on the E-3 for a few hours tonight, to force myself to look at things a bit differently. Here's a few of the processed results.
    Any c & c welcome

    Excellent shots, I think No 1 is very graphic and 2 & 3 have DoF just right...it might be a silly question but is the blue of the thistles natural?

      Thanks
      The blue of the thistles is prob a touch more purple in actuality, but I shot with the white balance as cloudy, sunny and auto and it wasn't getting the exact colour of the purple, so went with these. I adjusted the saturation a little on them.

        They are actually Cornflowers and I agree with Susan that they may be a little more purple in their natural state - lovely shots though.

          Thanks for identifying them David, do you know if they are a weed? whenever gardening I pull them out, but the come back time and time again. Not that I mind, because if they are a weed they're kinda pretty

            I wonder if they will develop into complete blue orbs....I'm thinking maybe these are at an early stage of development...if so I'd keep them.

              Fantastic shots,

              I am seriously considering investing in one of these lenses.

              1 Are these cropped?
              2 How far from the subject were you?
              3 Is the lens easy to use?
              4 Does it autofocus?

              Thanks
              Tim

                Very nice closeups Susan, the colours may not be as per real life, but they do pop out at you.

                  Thanks Tim

                  It is a fantastic wee lens, I'd highly recommend if you enjoy Macro work.

                  They are cropped slightly, but just a bit of the right hand side to centralise a bit more.
                  I was around 20cm (roughly) from the subject, give or take. The lens is really easy to use, auto focusses no problem.

                  Brian, they look like this all the time, they don't seem to advance any further than how they look in the photo's. It adds a touch of colour to the garden

                  Thanks John

                    The E-3.like the E-30 and E-620 also does not do purples, take a look at this thread to see.

                      Nice photos, wasn't aware of the blue/purple problem with the E3, interesting thread.

                      All the best.
