Rose is a Rose
Posted By: dylansalt, 06-20-2009, 01:40 PM


Was an indoors day today but eventually got bored and my wife had some roses in a vase which were close to dying.

Thought, what the heck lets see if I can get a decent semi macro pic of one with the 55-300 @ the 300 end.

Below is the result - seemed to come out ok

Hope it brightens up your day

nice, Dylan. Perhaps next time try some different angles both with the camera and the light,
experiment and have fun!

Good effort.
A little challenging with this lens, but you've done well.
A nice finish to the day for me.
Good night...

Thanks chaps

Yeah my genre is normally travel journo photography and have never done static still life - I don't seem to have the artistic feel for it;-)

For me tho am quite stoked
