Re: Camera and Photography Thread -III

Mortji, I knew about the general Sigma focusing issues before I bought that lens, but the issue was selling off a returned item as new. The papers inside were shoved in on the side, and the items(including the lens) inside were in new small clear polythene pouches which did not have the Sigma logo o...

B&H Photo are the largest camera dealer in the east coast of the US, and probably the whole US. Basically, you could place your order, and if they don't have it by around then, you can cancel. They are very reputable. I have bought all my camera equipment from them, but my experience has been a...

Re: Camera and Photography Thread -III

Praksamji,

The last shot looks great. Just a suggestion - how about cropping just a wee bit from the left and top while retaining the aspect ratio to get rid of the orphan branches?
Saw Purush's great panning shots. The handheld 50 prime without anti-shake can't match up to that...

Re: Camera and Photography Thread -III

^^^ just needs a little more magnification! A little closer and you're home! Why not try cropping?
In case the idea was to show a bit of the real flower along with the refraction, then could smaller aperture have helped?
