A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday – 4

Another flower photo for an easy-going Sunday. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.

This photo was taken about a week ago at the Farmer’s Market. I was just taken aback by the fresh Dahlias everywhere, so I was shooting them. The flowers were so big that I could focus on the petals, and I just loved the shape of them.

This was taken with my 105mm macro lens at an aperture of f/3.3 and I focused on the closest petals to the lens.

Enjoy your day!

  5. Terrific shot! Nice depth of field with the low aperture; love the softness in the background colours!

    • Thanks, Steve! The DOF kind of surprised me with this macro, but being that the flower was so large, I didn’t have to get really close, so that gave good up front DOF, and then the softness in the background. Good lens! 🙂

  6. Wow – most amazing image!! I love the colors and use of depth of field

  7. Just beautiful!! Love the way the petals in the foreground are in focus and the center and petals in the background aren’t. What an interesting picture.

  8. Good lens, yes, but more importantly — good eye! So much beauty around us is unappreciated unless a photographer says, “Look at this!” 🙂
