The Weekly Close Up ...18/2009 Post yours

Welcome to The Weekly Close Up, where you will see things like never before.

It's the peak of summer for many of us and the shootings getting better even in spite of the storms.

So what have you for me this week? Show us all and tell us how you got it.

I'll be waiting.

Jim

Great shots Jim especially that little spider.

Here's a couple of Jellyfish I found on the beach, taken with the E3, 25mm pancake + EC20. All uncropped.

I'm sussing out wether or not to get the 50mm f2 lens so thought I'd put the 25mm on the EC20 and see how I went.

Cheers,

Paul

Quite appropriate you should use the pancake for the subject matter!

Jim

Great, as always, fantastic little beasties against a striking primary colour backdrop.

Hi Jim

That first one is very good.I think its the red eyes of the fly with the blue of the flower.

Just one from me this week



Taken with the E3 and the 50-500 at 500mm.

Yes the E3 is back from repair and everything seems ok.

Ps sorry if anyone has already seen this picture over on E system user.

I agree that the pancake was the best lens for the situation. I bet you don't pick these up and toss them back in huh.

I think you would have a blast with the 50mm, It is a heck of a lens.



Andym

Either that is one huge flower or those are tiny bees.
The details in the flower are incredible.

Also thank you for the compliments everyone. I've been tyring to work on composition rather than just high mags.

Thanks for sharing

Jim

Re: The Weekly Close Up ...18/2009 Post yours

Not really macro, but it's as close as my 50-200 SWD could focus. I found this flower at the zoo (yes, I have plenty of photos of animals as well. :-) Any preference for color . . .



. . . or B&W . . .



. . . or are neither of them anything special?

E-410, 50-200 SWD, 1/800 sec. at f/6.3, ISO 400; cropped a sliver off the right to remove a distracting element. Contrast adjustments and B&W conversion in Aperture.
