Pentax K10 Tamron 18-250mm Flower shots
Posted By: eagle2, 05-17-2008, 06:59 PM

I just took these Rose pictures today and uploaded them to my Flickr account.

They were shot at about 70mm, f11 ISO 200-350 and fast shutter speeds of 1/500-1/1000 hand held.

There was a breeze!

No post processing except for a little cropping.

What do you think?

Nice shots, I like the last two especially. I think the last one might have been a little more dramatic if shot from a 3/4 angle instead of directly downward. Good color rendition, and nice exposures. It's easy to overexpose roses. I know from personal experience

You are correct about exposure NaCl. I learned something I will share with you.

I have been photographing for quite some time, but not with this new digital equipment for very long. To have the ability with my K10 to bracket pictures so easily is a new experience for me.

That is what I do now, use the three picture bracket and I usually get a keeper. My K10 likes to under expose about 1/3 stop EV. So I set the camera on +1/3 EV and I get 0 EV +1/3 EV and + 2/3 EV. But the surprising thing is how much difference it makes to move just a little and you will change the exposure a lot. Also how much difference the color and texture of the subject contribute to the exposure. So I am slowly learning how to be a little better at my photography.

Thanks for looking and commenting. I appreciate it very much!
