    Oh how lovely Maggie as this bloom extends itself towards the light! Wonderful composition and great bokeh as well!

    Nicely composed with wonderful dof and exposure to show off the lovely hued petals taking in the light and standing out against the soft greens of the background! Very pretty Maggie! : )

  • hi sandy thanks heaps and i can see the potential of this lovely lens but am still struggling a bit – cant manage the manual focus and get into such hilarious contortions to peek thru the viewfinder in the absence of live view…really heartened by your lovely comment tonight
