Spring Poppies
Posted By: mikeSF, 03-07-2009, 11:24 PM

I went out walking today (on my 40th birthday) and happened by some beautifully bright poppies.
Hope you enjoy the vivid trappings of Spring!

thanks so much. that first shot is the M-50mm at f/2.8 IIRC. man. it renders bokeh like a watercolor painting.

the second shot is the same lens flipped backward using the reversing ring ($14 eBay). probably f/1.7

third shot is f/4 (or 5.6) to catch the detail of the petals.
