Hi Friends:
Another busy day of photographing products, people and working on business projects...
Keep hoping that I will have some time off and will go to some nice place and take some good pictures to post here like you all do...

Here is one from our vacation in Dehradoon a few months ago.  I have done some PP work to enhance the image.
Several of my workshops show the type of the works that I have done on this one for some of you who have asked some questions before.

The interesting thing is that here I am using my 300mm lens at 200mm. At f/5.2 0n my lens as a max aperture I am able to achieve this dark DOF at about 5 PM light in the evening.
It is another test shot to see what my lens is doing.
Thanks for viewing!

hi David this is a grt image the lighting and details are right on the button the background is correct for the shot imho a very well presented image
tfs regards bryan

Hello, David -
I really like the result you achieved here - beautiful and subtle lighting makes even the razor-sharp petals seem soft and touchable. Deep, rich colors and tones against the dark background. I use the same lens, and quite often I use it in the same manner (taking macro shots from a distance) and I generally get good results but I think this one is exceptional. Well done.

dear David,
this subtle light and delicate pink colors make very mellow ambience here,
very week flowers in the dark space, but those are shining with their full vigor spirits,
thank you for your beautiful picture,

Hi David!
What a beauty! Excellent focus and superb details. The soft light is splendid and I like the great contrast against the black BG.
A wonderful composition: congratulations.
ciao! Vanda

Hi David
The colour of your geranium is gorgeous and rich, especially with the dark background. Simple but beautifully composed, nice sharp detail and great notes.
