Hyacinth by DimensionSeven Hyacinth by DimensionSeven

2007.03.15, Komló, Hungary.

Nikon D80 - Sigma 105 f/2.8 @ f/3.5 - 1/125 sec - ISO 100 - NEF - Capture NX 1.2 - PS/CS2

Hyacinthus was a young love of the Greek god Apollo. Apollo accidentally killed him, and from his blood sprang the hyacinth, a plant with a fragrant cluster of flowers.

Alright, long time no submission from me. I was busy with a pediatric conference. This was shot 2 weeks ago while testing my new lens, the Sigma 105 f2.8 Macro EX. This lens is a dream come true. When I came to DA 2-3 years ago and realised what (d)SLRs can do, I knew I have to have this lens once. Now I have it. So you better enjoy it! ;)

I'm starting to really like your photography. Haha. What a beautiful flowers and a magical touch in photoshop I think.. or there is a macro focus?

it was made with a macro lens indeed, but it's not near 1:1. Rather just a close-up with almost open aperture. :nod:

Very beautiful. I love how you focused the flower.
My only complaint - not really a complaint, but I don't know what else to call it - is that it could be a bit brighter so that there's more contrast to the color. Other than that, though, it's wonderful. :]

I love the delicate lighting and the wonderful colours. The background is excellent, showing just enough detail to be interesting but not so much as to be distracting or overpowering. Great work :D

I like this one. The soft colours of the flower work perfectly with the soft green and purple. One of the nicest flower shot's I've seen so far.

Hehe.. I dunno how much experience you have, but if you can take shots like this without much experience then..... well you're either experienced or a genius :idea:

I see stuff in magazines that doesn't even come close to this.

Nagyon kicsi lett a Dof mekkora volt a rekesz !? kicsit vehetted volna szűkebbre hogy éles legyen az egész virágzat, ne csak 1-2 levél, fenntről lehetne vágni kicsit ! Üdv

Lehetett volna persze szűkebb (f3.5 volt), de akkor már tiszta nyolcszög lett volna a háttér, és élesebb is (a háttér kb. 20 centire van a virágok mögött). És az elmosott hátterek a gyengéim... :)

Polárszűrőm nincs rá külön a highlightok levágására (bár akkor a bokeh is "laposabb"), majd ha lesz Cokin CPL-em, azt minden lencsére rá tudom rakni.

Szerintem portéra is tökéletes (bár eddig csak macskát fotóztam vele, ahhoz pedig ideális a hosszabb lencse), meg általában véve telére. Éles mint a beretva. És szigorúan véve ez sem macro kép. Nem tudom mekkora a nagyítás ezen, de 1:4-nél is tuti gyengébb, mivel a focus limitert használtam.

Egyelőre azt tudom mondani hogy megéri az árát. :)

Nah lassan megyek a mamámhoz kipróbálni az új 35-70 f2.8-at... :D

Te aztán nem viccelsz halllod e!? Ekkora arzenállal céget lehet alapítani.. Gyanús vagy nekem ennyire veszik a képeket!? Ez egy vagyon már lassan :D Többe van eddig majdnem mint a Micra :D! Tudom hogy eszméletlen bunkóság... de szeretném majd a sigmát kölcsönkérni egy hétvégére.. Tudok helyette adni egy 70-300-t :)! Üdv

Á, nem olyan sok ez. Gyűjtögetek és nem költök rezsire. ;)
Amúgy nem mondasz hülyeséget, ha novembertől munkanélküli leszek, akár felcsaphatok fotósnak is.

Nem probléma! Én majd az állványodat meg a vázadat kérném el - a cokin infrared filter tesztelésére. :nod:

megvetted a Sigmát is .. vazze ez nagyon durva! !! Mik a tapasztalatok érdemes megvenni!? Nagyon gondolkodom .. az Artwork fotónál azt mondták hogy macron kívül nem lehet használni semmire.. portréra sem jó!? Nagyon tetszik a kerettörténet :)
