Flowers at f/40

 They always say to stop and smell the roses.
I would much rather stop and take a photo of the roses or whatever flower I can find.
Things have finally slowed down for a little bit, but won't stay that way for long. So I thought I would take the opportunity to post a few pictures. Its been a while since I have got to go out and take some pictures. The top to photos were taken in my computer room of a bouquet I bought for my wife and the bottom is from when Ron and I went out and tested his new toy. All three are at 250 mm focal length and a f stop of 40, with varying lengths of exposure. I also took some lily photos but thought I would wait to post them later this week.


  1. Eye catching shots you captured! Colors are sharp and crisp!

  2. Flowers for the wife?? You big suck up! Are you trying to make me look bad? LOL

    All three are great shots but I really like the first and last the best.

  3. All three of these came out really good, bright and well focused! I'm curious about using f/40... Makes sense if you want everything in focus but I've always found things start getting flat and lifeless in the higher f stops. Perhaps I'm missing something and need to revisit the smaller apertures?

  4. I like the colors, and the DOF. I never shot at f/40 before, because never own a lens could step down that low, and didn't know Nikon make a lens that could shoot at f/40. Perhaps, you could provide the lens ID.

    1. I was actually using a Tamron 18-250 lens.
