Lovely capture of their end... It is as powerful a shot as when they are in peak bloom.

Thank you. I was also thinking something like that.

A 50mm f2.8 macro
One of the best all-around Macro lenses out there. Nice sample chiaroscuro shot.

Thank you. Yes I quite agree about the A 50mm Macro. But to be honest I still prefer the K 50mm f4 for entirely subjective reasons.

I also own both the A50/2.8 and K50/4.

I also prefer the K - to me out offers much better contrast. And the built quality on the K is insanely good.

I'd like to do a side by side comparison at some point.

Richard, nice mood and lighting with the tulips. It would be interesting to see it in B&W.

Thank you. Actually they are chrysanthemums which are starting to wilt. The effect is very easy to achieve. Put your camera at base ISO and into manual and start at f8 to f11 and your fastest flash synch shutter speed. Pop up the flash and put a diffuser in front of it. Don't have a diffuser? Use a piece of tissue as one - it works just as well. Compose, focus and shoot. Check the image to see if you need to change the aperture either up or down. Repeat at the new setting if necessary.
Off camera flash with a diffused snoot (easy to make home made snoots out of cereal boxes, tape and tissue) is even better, but here I was being lazy.
Make sure you have no bright objects in the background which might reflect the flash
