2008 Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers - Laurel Bank Park
Posted By: dosdan, 10-01-2008, 06:00 PM

Ash has beaten me to showing some shots. Here are some shots from Laurel Bank Park taken on Sunday 21st Sept 2008.

What I liked best was the shots in parts of the garden in partial shade rather than in the open. The variability of lighting added another layer of interest to the contrast of colours.

Camera: K100D Super.

The first shot was taken with the Mk. II kit lens @ 35mm FL & F9.5. It was taken by my 10 y.o. daughter, Uma. I put an auto lens on and told her to take some shots. I liked this one:




The next two shots were taken with a M50/F1.7 @ F8.








The final shot was taken with a A70-210/F4 (non-SMC version) at 200mm FL & F6.7. I could not get physically close to the flower and wanted to isolate it so I had to use the longest zoom I had. There's a bit of a spider web on it, but it's not too intrusive. I've love the shadow of the stem on the leaf at the top centre.

Some more shots illustrating the contrast between lighting, colours and "wildness" vs. orderliness.

M50/F1.7 onwards


















F35-105/F4-5.6 @43mm FL & F11




A70-200/F4 @ 200mm FL & F6.7
