That's a pretty amazing shot. Two queries, if I may:

1) What is that a shot *of*? Maybe it's obvious to others... Not I.

2) Why make the bokeh the foreground with focus in the back? I think my choice would have been to shoot it the other way, focus in the lower left of the frame, or even with a diagonal in focus from lower left to upper right... Not that I think any of these choices are worse or better, I'm just wondering what guided the choice you made.

Love the full tank at the bottom!

How'd you process that? In camera or post?

Cheers,
Cameron

Thanks Cameron! The photo of the entire tank is definitely post processed. My time there was a bit brief so I am hoping I can get back there and explore a little more.

Cheers

It's a shot of the inside of a small bowl at a furniture store that caught my eye. I originally did try to get the foreground in focus but the minimum focusing distance was not really allowing me that option without moving the camera farther back but that ruined the framing/composition of the shot so I just went with what I could get into focus. Still thought it was interesting enough to share. Thank you for the interest!

Nice shot Vincent! Was that an in-camera HDR shot? Looks great!

Thanks. No, it wasn't an HDR shot. Single shot, processed with Color Efex (Nik Software). It was evening -- after sunset.

It's been a good garden year so far. My wife has canned 40 quarts of green beans so far and frozen a lot of sweet corn. Lots of fresh cucumbers and zucchinis too.

Definitely. You seem have an eye for finding the photogenic in the everyday. It's a shot that's hard not to stare at, very interesting, and probably a very judicious use of B&W.

Last weekend I tried out my (new to me) Pentax-M 50mm F/4 with a 20mm extension tube. I think something like a 100mm must make it much easier to photograph bugs, as with the 50 you really need to get close! But... I got a bit lucky.

First of all with a butterfly (moth?) that was feeling very chill and really didn't seem to mind my presence.

Ugly Papillon:




I even have closer shots, but the thing was so hairy/ugly that they're really not that nice.

And then, I saw a bee that seemed to fly straight at another one that was in a flower, and they apparently fought (?!). One left, and the other one seemed momentarily dazed, left barely hanging on to a petal. I got a few shots before she came to and flew away.

Dazzzed Bee #1:




Dazzzed Bee #2:




Finally, caught this one mountain climbing lillys...

Climbing Lillys #1:




I'm pretty happy with these shots, but ultimately I'm not sure I'll use the 50mm Macro much for critters, because it's pretty hard to get close enough...
