    Photographing flowers isn't really my preference but every once in a while I stumble upon something that catches my eye, so here are 5 shots of the same flower on my neighbors garden...

    Notice the detail on the spider web :)

    with Macro mode (more like close-up)

    All these were shot with the Minolta MD 35-70mm f3.5 w.Macro, a lens I recently fell in love with again - Hadn't use it for some time but lately it has been mounted on the Nex-6 and I immediately remembered why I loved that lens :)
    M mode, ISO 100, f/5.6-8, 1/125, shoot RAW and edited in LR5.3
    Really pleased with the results - I think these are of my best flower shots

    You should really probably do this more often Nick. ;)

    I love the way these were rendered. I have to get into legacy lenses. I think the techie in me hates manual anything. I once had to stop myself from getting an electronic wine opener. :)

    Thanks. You probably wouldn't believe me if I told you that the colors of the SOOC images aren't very far from these!!! So these were indeed very little processed :)
