    Orchidaceae

    More practice shots with the Nikkor 50 mm. This was shot at the top of a staircase using ambient light from the window below. I should have bounced it, but I was too lazy at the time.

    ISO 200, f/5.6, 1.3 sec
    Orchidaceae

    I took this pinkish orchid outside to shoot for the sake of more light, but I do not like it against green, so I have given it a b&w treatment.

    ISO 200, f/8, 1/80
    Orchidaceae

    C&C welcome.

    Well these are way too good for practice shots.
    Shutter speed of the first shot is 1.3 seconds, was it taken hand-held? Pretty sharp for a hand-held shot.
    Its well composed shot.

    Thank you for the compliment, Sahil. As far as hand-holding goes, no, that first one was shot on the tripod, using the timer, I think.

    I definately see improvement here Janis. You are now starting to appraise your own shots which is good.

    Thank you, Peter. I am a little less flustered when faced with shooting decisions than I used to be, and more deliberate. I "feel" I am making progress, so it is good to know that it shows.
