About the Image(s)

Digital Capture using our new Canon F/1.2 50mm glass.

Composition part of my Intimate with Nature series, that is, sometimes getting in close to see how the insects (AP mode) I set to F/4.5 for a medium amount of Dof; using a minimum focusing distance helped to create the Bokeh, too.

An ever so slight Vignetting is added. This one of only a few pieces I may end up presenting in color.

Hi Lance!

They do look like dancers! It's wonderful to find these little scenes in nature. The dof is perfect for the scene and your new lens does a fine job with Bokeh.   Posted: 09/03/2020 10:09:12

Great to finally have evidence that your sensor is capable of capturing color images!

I agree these look animated - had the same thought of dancers. Something playful. Each has a different "expression." One looks like a fish swimming!

And the F4.5 works; all the important stuff is sharp - and the background nicely blurred. Well done.

How large are these? What are they?   Posted: 09/03/2020 10:58:17

....I did not know my digital camera can do that! Who knew?! LOL!!

Good questions: As this is NOT captured with a Macro lens, but seemingly exhibits similar visual ques - the tallest Dancer, if I may, is about 2" tall..maybe 3 if we add the curved portion.

This is actually a funky moss that was growing on the tree limb in Central Florida - I only saw this one tree with the strange growth, however.

Appreciate your comments, Steven! :)   Posted: 09/03/2020 11:08:44

My apologies for the late classwork heavy this month. This is an excellent image, great DOF. The photo is very interesting and I agree that this may be well presented in color.   Posted: 09/22/2020 14:04:07
