I went out with my friends +Felix Reinders (www.felixreinders.com) and +Rudi van den Heever (www.linruphotography.com) to a local patch that looked promising. Being mindful of mistakes I made last time, I also made sure to take along my 70-200mm lens for some abstract attempts.
The patch was good.
The location was good.
The light was good(ish).
The 70-200mm lens rocked!
Here's one of my attempts using this lens for some abstract floralscapes - using a very shallow depth-of-field (DOF)...I hope you like it. I wanted to isolate a single flower or cluster of flowers against the setting sun and the myriad of flowers behind and around it...

Once again stunning Morkel. You have captured the atmosphere and beauty of the flowers and setting perfectly. Johan van EedenReplyDelete
Thanks a lot, Johan!Delete
How's that dynamic range!ReplyDelete
I know, right? Thanks for popping in, Chad...Delete
Nice lens. F/2.8 on a 200 mm zoom that must come in handyReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment Andrew. Yes, the 70-200mm f2.8 lens is an amazing tool.Delete
