Bleeding Hearts

Took this out front with my Kiron 105mm Series 1 Macro.

This is the second year for the plant, and it is looking incredible this year!

The focus looks a little bit soft on them but they do look very nice. There are just a few things that I would recommend changing like the brightness and maybe the contrast too.

Very pretty Were you purposely going for a soft look...I know some people intentionally shoot a soft focus on flowers.

Wow, very neat plant. I really like the soft focus look if that was what you were going for as it adds some mood to the photo.

Thanks

I was trying to get it sharper, but my windscreen was not holding up very well so there was some slight movement due to wind. Between the shadow, medium aperture and slight movement I was just glad I go the shots I did.

Next time I'll try some of the things you suggested...

If anyone has any tips for working with the focus lock indicator I'd appreciate it. The one thing I miss about the Nikon AF indicator was the exposure indicator became a guide to tell you which way to adjust your focus on my D40x. That was a great help in manual focus.

Love the bleeding hearts. Are these cultivated? The ones that grow in the wild in the mountains around here are red.

OK, I bumped these up in priority and so got the images processed. Otherwise I'm afraid I'd forget about it. Here's what is in my front garden.

And one more shot. I used the Vivitar Series I 105mm macro, same as you!

Looking at them now, they are different from your plants. They don't have the extra lip curled back from the bottom end.

They are Fuchsia and are quite abundant here. You might like to go over to the thread I posted today, Garden Flowers, where I have a few more photos. Enjoy!
