Fall Farewell
Posted By: Marc Langille, 10-21-2009, 08:06 PM

Just one image of a Pink Cosmos - taken last weekend since I was not sure if/when the frosts might come.

I should mention that I am quite pleased how sharp it turned out, given it's low shutter speed of 1/30 sec. with a 200mm macro lens. It was in windy conditions - just had to wait for that perfect moment when there was a lull in the wind conditions...



The Cosmos has always been a favorite flower of mine, because of it's beauty, color, symmetry and the subjects it attracts.

Regards,
Marc

Beautiful image Marc! The DOF and color saturation are spot on. So did you take this from a mile away with the new 250-600mm?
