Rambling Rose

By flowerpower59
This was a real experiment. Taken outside, using a tripod. The sprays of flowers were almost constantly on the move, especially this close, when it seemed like they were in a gale. I wanted the small aperture to get max. DOF but then the speed was very slow. To increase it, I cranked the ISO right up just to see what would happen. It's enormous, so inevitably there is noise, but not as bad as I thought it would be. Is there anything else I could have done? (Apart from snip the flower and take it indoors) Or is it just a situation where you have to accept the trade-off between speed and/or DOF?

A perennial problem around here (they don't call this area Windhill for nothing) I sometimes have to resort to shutter speed priority. You have done very well here.

Oooh yes, beautifully abstract, the heart of the matter. I wish you'd allowed a few more pixels at the bottom, for the tip of that little curving petal, but that's minor. Very beautiful, with the subtlety of watercolurs.

A beautifully crafted image with great colour and detail.

You could bring along a thin bamboo stick to prop up the flower with and keep it a bit more stationary.
It's a beauty anyway Smile
