A First.

By CecilyC
This is my first upload (and one of my first shots) taken with my new baby, the wonderful Nikon D50. This shot was taken with my dad's 20 year old micro Nikkor lens; it's pretty cool that I can use the same lenses as he did in his early years! however, since my d50 is so much newer than the lens it's really hard to get a shot in perfect focus so please forgive the unperfect-ness of this shot. Kinda like it tho, has a japanese feel to it somehow... Background is snow, btw. (yes, indeed, we have snow here...)
Feel free to comment and have a great weekend! /Catharina

Full marks to you; I still haven't had the guts to attach my older Canon lenses to my 30D yet. A good subject chosen.

Great subject, fantastic colour. I like the composition and selective focus. I love my D50 too - hope you really enjoy yours.

So glad you're having fun with your new baby Smile

And this is a great shot. I'm an orchid nut second to being a heliconia nut but that bias has nothing to do with it. This shot has such a nice soft glow to it.

Such pretty flowers. They're so vibrant and the white background makes them even more so. That shallow dof is really nice, too. Good job.

A lovely shot Cat and my apologies for missing the debut of your D50. To be honest, you were doing so well with your Coolpix, I don't see any improvement in this, as far as quality is concerned, but it's early days and once you've got the hang of it I'm sure you will dazzle us.
Regards, Jim.
