Tammy 90's first outing......
Lens: 90mm Camera: K200D Photo Location: Adelaide Botanic Gardens 
Posted By: MoiVous, 03-24-2010, 02:55 AM

After my Tamron 90 arrived from the US (thanks aerodave) I thought it only fitting to take it out and introduce it to a nice part of our city - the Botanic Gardens

Its going to be a bit of a learning curve (focus limiter is an essential) - and me thinks a tripod is going to be a permanent accessory in macro mode! I had to employ my flash a few times - it was just a bit breezy for hand holding.

Here are a few shots click for the Picasa page or click on images to enlarge......

Lotus flower heads - after the flower has set seed.



Then I found the dahlia garden.....








And some thorny stuff too




Aussie Grevilleas are a wonderful plant for testing DOF.....




and a hibiscus - note the little bug on the stamen....




and this African water lilly - they only flower at night, so getting this bud in the middle of the day is about the best you get......




and finally a seed head - not sure what this was.....




Its a sharp beasty - but that DOF is thin in close. But I think its will be a very pleasant relationship.

Thanks for looking - and C&C welcome.

Cheers

These look terrific to me, Chris. I don't think I could have done this hand held with my DFA 100 - I too old and shakey!

Great job - and the lens appears to be super.

Good to see you're already taking great shots with the new lens. If I see any more, I'm bound to have real seller's remorse.

Great doing business with you. Hope you continue to enjoy it!

I like them all but the thorn photo sticks out the most, pun intended.

If I had a tripod I'd have tried for a bit more DOF and really got stuck

Cheers Dave - Isn't it amazing how a few images inspire you? And I was amazed at how crisp this lens is. Those are two of the reasons I pulled the trigger on the Tamron 90.

Anyway, your spring must be almost upon you - there'll be so much budding, flowering and reproducing going on where do you start?

Thanks Dave! And yes, this is a fine lens as everyone says. But don't get to remorseful - you've got that DA 100 WR haven't you? Hope to see a few more shots from you on that.

Thanks for the kind words Jer. I have to say I was noticing my own shake all the time - its a credit to the SR and good breathing that I had so many keepers.

Next job is to try some bugs - and have a go with my extension tubes on it as well!

Cheers
