    Valentine's day - flowers for my wife, photo op for me.

    Handheld, daylight in my dining room.
    A6000 with older Tamron SP 90/2.5 27 BBAR macro lens, probably f5.6-ish.

    First photo I have dared to post. Suggestions for improvement are welcome. I know I should have used a tripod, which would have let me use a much lower ISO instead of 3200, but I was losing daylight fast and did not want to take the time.

    Still, I thought it turned out pretty well all things considered.

    Looks good. I would have shot it at f/4 or wider and sacrifice dof for lower ISO. That's not a criticism, just personal preference.

    Thanks, fractal. I often find a really thin DOF appealing in some photos. And I do have others with a wider aperture for this and other flowers in the bunch, but ended up liking this one more. It is entirely possible I will think differently next time I look through the photos, so perhaps it is even a thing of the moment as well as personal preference.

    Very kind of you to say. I find the quality of images here kind of intimidating. I shall strive to overcome and post more in the future.
