practice makes better Smile
hello budi, ISO400 doesn't seem too high hurdle for your camera, try this image at a much later time and see what difference that makes.
Anyway, my mod was a momentarily reaction eliminating the bright white surface on the left top corner, but on a second thought I could also crop a bit from the bottom, nearer the bright edge, which looks like a white line. Talking of colours I do like the symbiosis of green leaves and blue reflection on the lens, All the colours actually match well together, the black of the lens barrel makes a nice contrast with the beige of the resting surface of the pot. The silver ring on the barrel (my old Rokkor Minolta lens has the same silver ring) pairs nicely with the white lettering. You could try a black and white too but I think here colour has many advantages because of where you have chosen to place the lens and shoot it.
Kindly,

Hello Pablo, Thank you very much my friend Smile ... yes practice makes better Smile, it still seem taken with ISO 100 with ISO 400 and will keep try to raise the ISO but at this light ISO 400 seem ok for shutter speed 1/125 to 1/250 sharp enough even my hand little bit shaking Smile, and I take several shot with this ISO on different aperture, this one is the first shot using 2.8 and compare it with 2, 4 and 5,6 and shutter from 1/125 - 1/250, it's very fun and I think very good to experiment like this with natural light, from wider focus range, more contrast and also little bit different color but I guess still same color only little bit different light intense Smile, I always thank you for encourage me with natural light Smile
For the Black and white yes, I haven't got any chance to try it yet and always forgot XD, and thank you for the modification now it's more focused to object and it's excellent
Thank you again,
Budi

This is nicely exposed, and decently sharp. Were you focussing manually, or using the AF?

The subject isn't exciting (as a picture: it's exciting as a lens and as an engineering product, though!), but the idea of trying different combinations out is excellent. Do it systematically, compare the results, and remember what you find for applying when you are taking pictures of people and places.

Can you see how the colour of the shadows is subtly different at the base of the lens, where the light is reflecting off the cream of the wall round the flowerbed?

I agree with Pablo - your camera will give good results at far higher settings than 400 if you expose correctly.

What conclusions have yo ureached from your experiments? What ideas, theories or ideas were you testing?

Thank you very much, sorry for the late answer really, really busy at this time lately, it is using manual focus, getting used to it now, and I really impressed with the Nikkor 1.2 AIS lenses.

Yes, I think it's beautiful color contradicting Smile, and also true I am lot doing experiment lately with very high ISO but acceptable max ISO for the result is 3200, it's still very worth outcome.

The theories I've so far is keep combining between lense opening, keep shutter at 1/125 for the sharpness and good clarity and the ISO till 3200 not more and the best of it also combination of modified color profile and white balance, because no exposure compensation on manual to capture nicely exposed picture Smile

Thank you very much for all the lesson my friend Smile, I deeply appreciated it
