Hello Folks

MY POV is narrow but my thoughts are not!!
Well this is my first post from my new body Nikon D700.
WOW...its amazing...(Nikon D700 Body)

I shot this young zinnia from a lower and narrow POV against the light but it was overcast and the light was also getting low so for light compensation I used ISO 1600 and to compensate my hand shake I set shutter at 400 while the aperture goes at F11 for getting details.
I think my investment didn't go in vain despite some reluctance from my friends.

Thank you for visiting and useful feedback
Have a nice Wednesday

Hello Mushtaq,

Very nice photo of the flower. I like the original view you chose taking the picture from a side angle. Very sharp and very clear. Nice color contrasts as well!

Nice work!


WOW indeed..

congratulations Mushtaq! this is an amazing shot and side shot is original and makes me wat to try it. too bad it's nightime here. :),

sharp details and perfect contrast. i like!


congratulations :)

keep experimenting and playing with your new d700 :) dont worry about dust speks on the sensor :)

the image is more important than the dust spots :) try to learn faster through trial and error :)

play with all ISO settings, use ALL your lenses :) am sure then your investment will be justified :)

good composition there :)

Hi Mushtaq,

Wow, lucky you! A D700, congratulations! A nice, sharp macro of this colorful flower and no noise for such a high ISO setting. Good off-center placement, and the soft dark background is perfect. Have fun with your new toy.

Best regards,

Mushtaq: Your investment into the Nikon technology and all it's hardware technology will NEVER be in vain! I've used Nikon cameras and lenses since 1962 and have never been disappointed with what Nikon offers. Although I feel they were slow to get into the digital revolution the company has caught up to all the competition offering the latest of all technologies for the digital technology. I recently purchased a Nikon D90 camera and incorporated all my other lenses for use with the camera body, including the Sigma 18mm-200mm AF, OS zoom lens. Although Nikkor lenses are "supposed" to be superior to other lenses I cannot find any flaws to the Sigma lens I purchased with my Nikon D90. I still use my other Nikkor lenses with the camera, but overall the Sigma lens offers any and all objectives that I have used with other Nikkor Lenses. The overall and objective use of the Nikon D90 coupled with the Sigma lens I would give it a score of 10+. If you have Nikkor lenses that fit this camera then you are one uppenance on your overall purchase. This particular shot should convince you of all that I have said. Great capture and image!

Salaam Mushtaq,

Mabrook, here you were waiting for full frame to test all your gear and here it did work well, a perfect DOF besides the sharpness. The bokeh is amazing and hope to see more fun of this TOY, the time you did pass in waiting for this was much sweet and as you got this the suspense ended, TFS.

dear Mushtaq,
interesting and beautiful horizontal portrait shot of the disk shape flower,
it looks like floating island on the space,
the side face shows us another expression of it, if we were the tiny fairy, it would be a jungle trees on the pink ocean,
cheerful and smart feeling is nice, maybe it is an excellent idea for new hat,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Hello Mushtaq,

This is an extremely good macro shot.
Very good chosen point of view.
Excellent focus and sharpness.
Especially I like the low light and lovely natural colors.
Congratulations on your new camera.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hello Mushtaq,

I must admit, this is a classic amongst shots!
I love how you have given such sharp, informative details of the flower in such a minimalistic way!
I love it!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Salam Mushataq,

Congrats for the new camera, as Nikon D700 is a very very good tool. There are lots of words can be tell on this picture, but one thing is sure that the picture should speak it self not the tools or the other stuff.

Well Done, this also is a difference between your previous macro shot and this.

Fantastic effort, very well done MUSHTAQ BHAI.

Hello Mushtaq

The image is just wonderful. The colors are awesome. Your assessment paid off. Great work. The pov is what caught my eye first.


Bom dia Mushtaq,
Impeccable.An original POV, a narrow DOF, a refined composition, perfect sharpness, beautiful colors and details. A subtle light.
That's a good formula for a fine presentation.
Best wishes,

I like this one´s original POV Mushtaq, very brave and interesting... Maybe a tighter crop of the upper negative space could place the center of the flower in a stronger location, closer to the top-right (rule of thirds)...

The against the light shot adds a nice mood and eyecatching ghostlines in the branch, very cool.

The ISO1600 is evident in the background noise, but it is not a bad issue at all.

Good note, entertaining and helpful!
Great shot, kudos for your new body ;) tell your friends not to be jealous hahaha

Hi Mushtaq!
Semplice, ma di grande effetto questa immagine.
Insolito il punto di vista, ma ottimo....dà massimo risalto al centro del fiore.
Eccellente la messa a fuoco e luce splendida.
Ottimo anche il contrasto, con il fondo scuro.
Ciao! Vanda
Congratulations for your new camera....I wish you a lot of photos as nice as this one. :))

Hello Mushtaq! That's a beautiful flower shot, the dark background enhances the bright colors of the subject and the very good sharpness of some parts contrasts well against the softness of all the rest. A great shot!
