    Thanks.

    I was not to excited about the rose shot, but I thought those thorns turned out nice.

    Great shots Dave.
    Was the thorn shot with just the SEL50 and its own minimum focus distance, or were close-up "accessories" used. If the SEL50 can do that by itself, I am mightily impressed... both with the lens and the photographer!

    Thanks. Just the 50mm and a slight bit of tweaking in post.
