Random snapshot that I was pleasently surprised with. Was trying to capture the shape and shading of the flower.

It's all about the lines...

This is a lovely, colourful, cheerful abstract. Without a title, I'd wonder what it was, but not fret, because of the gentle beauty.

Tiny depth of field doesn't matter, making it pure shapes, not a direct representation.

And I love the utterly misleading EXIF data! You and I know why: others may have to work it out...

An old lens used on aperture priority setting with no auto info link. Hence f1.

Super composition, and use of portrait, I just wish that leading petal edge was sharper. It's the nearest thing to us, it's what we should feel we could reach out and touch.

Oooh - not sure what happened with the Exif data there!! There was no mislead intended I assure you xx

I believe it was on Manual all the way at F 2.8.

Mrs WoolyBill - I do agree - I wish it was shaper too!

It happens with EXIF data when you use a lens that is not chipped for feeding info to the camera.

There's no fault involved: use an older lens, nad you will get this (along with having to use it more or less totally manually...)
