More shots from the Vivitar 105mm
Posted By: Igilligan, 03-28-2008, 04:09 PM

It has been a while since I got this lens, and I picked up the tamron 28-75 2.8 2 weeks later, so I have been bouncing back and forth between them.

Here are some little shots with the Series 1 105 macro.

Actually this is Bud's beautiful photo...

Igilligan - I really like the way you have cropped this to bring out the light on the focused petals and allow the background to recede. Since I am just learning and reading about composition, did you intentionally set the angular lines, and the way the light and color bring the eye into the photo, but don't move it off the right edge?

I was absolutely locked on the tips of the light orange petals.

I don't know enough yet to comment on the color, but what really matters is that my immediate reaction was - NICE PHOTO!
I wish it was mine!
And all of the wonderful setting of the photo was done by Bud. It is a natural fade of light and focus off of the petals as you flow thru the shot from left to right and front to back. A great composition IMHO.

I only cropped a tiny bit off of his original as practice and for fun. I posted it in here my thread because I dont think he posted it Pentaxforums yet. And I wanted to show him my crop...

They are all beautiful but my favorites are the grass shot and the orange flower, wow.
