    OMG it's beautiful !
    The bokeh has a strange "ultrasound" like quality that is nearly hypnotic... The diffused light shaft and how the purple and green enhance each other is brilliant.
    And this is from someone who is usually bored to tears by flower shots !!!

    Thank you!

    Here's a different shot of the scene so you can see what was going on with the light.

    Holy crap I like the second one too !
    Now please stop or I'll have to reconsider my take on flower shots (boring as death itself) entirely. Sigh...

    As with the 18-55, the 55-210 surprises many people with the quality of shots that it can produce. These two shots being a prime example. Nicely done. :)

    I have that lens but never got shots like yours. Great job! Guess I'll get back to practicing.

    Hey Colin, THIS coming from a guy who's embarrassed about being new to photography??!!

    I'd hang the second one on my wall... fantastic! :) :)
