that excursion last saturday was extremely satisfying in terms of both the process and the outcomes. so here are two more poppy flower vs. barley shots.
never before i had used the macro capabilities of my new tele zoom, but here, for the shallow depth of field, it is really indispensable. in a severe attack of lens buying addiction i had succumbed to the new tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 tele-macro ld di, which david kilpatrick of photoclubalpha.com had reviewed very favourably here. It definitely is a steal, and the remaining chromatic abberations – for this price you don’t get an apo lens – can be easily corrected with a gimp plugin, if necessary.
