Maple Seeds, K20D, & 2 Macros
Posted By: acbees, 05-27-2008, 05:29 PM

Took these a couple of weeks ago to compare my newly acquired Tamron 90mm f2.5 with my old standby Super Macro Takumar 50mm f4. At present, focus is harder for me to get with the Tamron, but when I do it's definitely sharp! Thought I had kept the same f stop for both lens (f16), but looking at the DOF sure makes me wonder. #1 and #3 are the Tamron, #2 and #4 the Takumar both at 1:2. DOF on the Takumar sure makes the seed stand out. Still have yet to compare them at 1:1 using the extensions. Taken in natural light with clouds passing occasionally over the sun.
Found these seeds standing just like this in a field next to where I was unloading LP. Got a shot of one last year with my old Sony P&S. Thought maybe with all the rain and wind we've had this year I wouldn't find any standing.
