Goldenrods. asters and monarchs
Posted By: JMR, 09-23-2008, 12:34 PM

Golden rods, asters and monarchs, all signs of Autumn. I just found a field that I could not resist. All straight jpegs from the camera, no cropping or other work. As I said, autumn beckons...

Yeah, nice work. I especially like the last shot, very artistic, could have done with a bit more light though. What lens were you using and what were the settings for that last one?

Well Gary, I don't usually pay much attention to exif data, so I had to look it up.
Shot at, ISO 100, 6.7 aperture, @ 200mm on a 50-200 lens. No shutter speed given because I shot on aperture priorty, as I do most of the time.

I could have picked a better specimen and waited for the wind to die down a bit, but I was running out of time. I am not done with that field yet. I was hoping for bright overcast conditions, but it was not to be today, in Toronto. One thing I forgot was to turn off shake-reduction. And I think the lens is very rocky when extended, so I have to learn to use the cable release almost all the time. My old manual lens was never like that. Too many images were soft, but maybe its my eyes. I just don't know.

Thanks for the comments and also thanks to Gawan and Bramela.

You could have opened the aperture more, that would have given more separation and more light.
