There's a face with an air of mystery. The golden glow from the back light in her hair really compliments her skin color.

Another melting snowflake from last Sunday. This one a very imperfect (but interesting, IMHO) two-shot focus stack. Again, reversed M 28-50mm F/3.5-4.5 zoom on 32mm of extension.

Agreed. Thanks for the comment.



Because I've commented before, I do not care for the purple body suit. I don't think it's flattering.

On the screens of both my computers it comes up dark with a purplish or magenta tint.

K-3 - A-400 and 1.7 AF TC

ISO 400, ƒ11, AV (1/200 and 1/320

You need a really bright day to use the A-400 (or any 5.6 lens, with the 1.7 TC. It's really made for 2.8 lenses. ) And also, just because you're technique is steady enough to use 400mm, doesn't mean it's steady enough for 700. Ye, I got a few images, of course the one that would have been perfect, the little guy ducked behind another bird, body perfectly in focus, but no head. At least I got a few for my efforts out in the cold. Even in bright sun, with lens that has a maximum aperture of 9.3, focus is really hit and miss. But even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. (Of course smell is a big thing for finding nuts... but I digress.)

We finally had some light snow in decent shooting conditions (-7C, no wind) this morning! Almost all the snowstorms have missed us so far this winter, dumping tons of snow in the northeastern US and eastern Canada, but nothing in Montréal. Basically, I've shot snowflake macros only four times this winter, including this morning... But at least I think I got some really nice shots this morning. Find one below - a three shot focus stack. Again, I used a reversed Pentax-M 28-50mm F/3.5-4.5 zoom, but with 42mm of extension this time.

K-3 and Sigma 70 macro
ƒ stops from 5.6 but most at ƒ16, ISO 100, two second delay and shutter lock up

The conditions of these pictures seems to be the weather has to be warm, and then a sudden freeze, yesterday was reasonably close to -8, then dropped to -27 overnight, perfect for ice crystals on our bed room window. Last time I had many images ruined by shallow DoF, this time taking everything from ƒ5.6 to ƒ 22 I got decent images from each set.
