Something completely different again today. Two weeks ago, I bought a nearly new Tamron 70-300 macro lens (at a whopping £60, it is my most expensive lens yet!). I realised today that I still hadn't used it, so here's my first attempt. The lens is definitely an improvement on my rather fuzzy sigma 70-300.
To keep the background dim, the mushrooms were "light painted" with a narrow beam, using a very low iso and 4 second exposure (almost sounds like I know what I'm talking about doesn't it!
Please do comment and critique as you see fit. I'm thinking of entering it at the club, so would appreciate your input.
