The Humble Tomato Flower

By teocali
With a sudden cold stiff breeze blowing, I resorted to looking for subjects in the shelter of the greenhouse - nothing exciting, only tomato flowers - not even a caterpillar (suppose I should be grateful as they can strip the tomato plants! LOL)

Settings: F/5 1/1000sec EV-2 ISO160 AV@100mm handheld

Many thanks for your support of my last upload - I'm still experimenting with the new macro lens

Super shot Sylvia. We have a few of the in the garden at present abd I had no idea how attractive they are. I will have to learn to look more closely. Excellent.

Another terrific Macro Sylvia and good pof
Witht the conditions free from wind and movement in the greenhouse I would have gone up to F16 to get a greater dof as it looks just a little shallow on this one. Remember it can be down to 1mm dof at F5 when in very close.
Great work yet again and pleased the lens was undamaged

Aha — you've bought the funky IS macro lens. Smile

Very nicely done, though I agree with Richard that it could use more depth of field — in particular, it would be nice to have the furry green leafy bits in sharp focus as well as the flower.
