Oke, I've tried it today....

Yesterday I posted a photo of a crocus by using F/3.5, 1/500sec. Beverly and Hans told me to use another F.
So I went for the same place, with my son!!

As you can see, I used the F/7.1, and this is the result.
I still love those flowers and they gave me this day also a lovely spingfeeling!


ps. Hans schiet nu maar op met die workshop! Ik heb nog een hoop te leren!!!

Hoi Janneke,
Very interesting macro. The location for the photo - and the sharpness and colors - could not be better at all.
Best regards.

Hello Janneke,
Excellent work with lovely flowers, very nice colors and very good light.

Yes, yes, yes, yes...this is indeed what I meant Janneke! Don't you see the difference yourself? There's no WS needed. It's a real improvement, don't you agree. The DOF and sharpness is great. The background is blurred and the core and petals of the crocus is excellent. A really joy for the eye! I'm proud of you ;-)

Gave plaat meissie, mag toch hopen dat je zelf ok het verschil ziet :-)

And here the vote for Janneke: full points!


Olá Janneke,
I agree with Janusz when saying: "could not be better at all"
AWesome post,
Best wishes, Raimundo

Hi Janneke,

Great macro shot with well managed light.
Great details and colors with nice sharpness.
Well chosen frame and a nice POV.
Congrats ans TFS.

Best regards,

(Sorry, i'm out of green faces today)

Bonjour Janneke

Très jolie macro de ces crocus !!
Beaux détails,belles couleurs et belle lumière!!

Hello Janneke!
Lovely three crocus flowers!
Good details and beautiful colours!
Best regards!

A nice trio.

The shot is outstanding, very cool:
- 3 is a number that normally works better than 2 for compositions.
- The colours are fantastic, the violet on top of those greens look gorgeous.
- The settings are very appropriate, sharpness in flowers is pleasant and the grass is properly unfocused.
- A nice and simple frame, which may not be necessary IMO.
- Beautiful subject.


Hello Jan

A spectacular image here. Just awesome. Love the colors and sharpness.

Bonjour Janneke.
Une excellente structure montre de belles couleurs dans ces crocus et la très bonne netteté permet une excellente observation des détails dans ces belles fleurs.

Bonne journée.

Hoi Janneke,

De kleuren van de vorige vind ik mooier, maar deze foto is echt prachtig scherp op de bloemen! Mooie crop/ compositie en POV. Het licht vind ik ook erg mooi zacht. Goed gedaan!

TFS Groetjes Simone

Hi Janneke, looks like spring has arrived in Holland for good , your capture is simply lovely , love those colors , even the green of the BG is ideal here as it complements the violet of the trio of crocuses very nicely , all is fine just as is , my compliments ,

Mooi hoor, de hele scherpte in de bloem.
Voor de meeste lenzen geldt, dat de grootste scherpte ligt rond F8... dat betekent niet dat het grootste deel van de foto scherp is, maar dat dit de "scherpste" stand is van de lens.
Zou je deze plaat hebben geschoten met bijvoorbeeld F16, dan zou je ook de achtergrond scherp hebben!
Het is zulk leuk speelgoed! Dit soort dingen maakt het heel leuk om te spelen met de instellingen...
Ik ben heel benieuwd wat je nog meer ontdekt! hahahah

Groetjes, Anneke

P.s.: ook ik krijg de lentekriebels van dit soort foto's... Lekkere kleur, mooie compositie!

OOoohhhh, these crocus are beautiful, Janneke, I love them most in this colour.
A pretty arrangement of these tree, everyone with a golden center.
Good sharpness, very well done, thanks

Greetings Janneke,
Excellent capture of this flowers colours, with perfect crispness & sharpness of details I like your choice of a tight crop, it makes these flowers POP.

Hi Janneke!
Bellissimo trio di crocus. Ottima la disposizione del soggetto. La messa a fuoco è eccellente e pure la gestione della luce che fa risaltare magnificamtente i fiori nel bel fondo sfocato.
Congratulations, well done.
Ciao! Vanda.
P.S. Thanks for your visit and comment

Hi Janneke,

Impressively clear photo my friend! Very high quality.

Looks perfect in every way!
TFS and have a nice day!
