One more farewell

Posted by

Couldn't resist one last closeup before clipping the stems and saving the bulbs. Again, this with the 90 T/S at 2.8 and a closeup filter. No additional blur added.

Beautiful, Larry. The focus is so gentle and expressive. So all this with your new Tilt/Shift lens? I am impressed with the quality. I had not thought it could be used in this way. Are you also cropping before posting?

Larry Lefever from Lititz, United States

Thanks, Karla. I often crop images if I think it improves the presentation. I generally don't crop deeply into the image. It's usually shaving off top/bottom or sides, not both.
