I am new to this forum and quite new to digital photography. Just started on that with a Nikon D5100.
Still climbing the learning curve, it is not steep though, I presume . I took this image (of Gloriosa Lily flower about to bloom fully) with Nikon F90X-Micro Nikkor 105mm 2.8D in September 2010. Scanned the photograph with a UMax Astra2200 scanner. Had done a bit of cloning to remove some distracting elements at the back. Slight sharpening done. All comments welcome.
I was walking through a side street in my small city, when I noticed this. It reminded me of a bowing
ballerina. I intend to take a similar shot with my new D5100 using focus stacking if I get a chance.
Can you advice me on how to go about that with out tethering? Thank you.
This second image(Hibiscus) was taken with D5100 hand held and Nikkor 70-300mm 4.5-5.6G at 300mm (DX 450)and f/5.6.The sky was overcast. Then suddenly the clouds parted a little and some light streamed in.Later the image was scaled,adjusted the colour(we still use this spelling) levels and enhanced sharpness a little with unsharp Mask in GIMP. It would have been better if the sky had some colour.But the gray was appealing and the bokeh quite tempting. I am still learning and would like to know where I am in the curve.
Thank you all.
