    Nice PP work on this one. It works as a photo and I think it would look great printed on canvas as a "painting", too.

    From the 1 on 1 group.

    just the colour palette is amazing.
    nice!
    Score 8/10 (from the Score Me!

    I like the way the one in the front really seems to pop out - an almost 3-d effect. It could stand a little sharper focus in the foremost petal.

    远摄 + 大光圈。。。

    是什么头?

    千万不要放毒,要不然我只好去买 200/2.8G ... 了。
  • Xuqing Kuang 9y

    这张照片好就好在两朵花有一定距离感,但是两朵花似乎都有种阴影感,好似后面有块白板,立体感马上就出来了,由于花的距离感和阴影造成的距离感冲突,果然是如梦似幻的,
    花瓣顶上有点余光,从上面打了灯?!
    颜色也是非常之厚重,非常漂亮。
    看焦外就知道是个好头。是否是刚在我帖子里说的 80-200/f2.8 ?
  • Xuqing Kuang 9y

    其它几张花朵也非常漂亮,但和这张比起来,花瓣的质感就相差很大了。

    再赞一下 Perfect !

    @Xuqing Kuang:对,就是那支Nikkor80-200/f2.8。我买的是二手第一代货,所以是不带D的。头比较沉,有1.3公斤重,对焦速度也不是很快,有时还抽风箱,由于没带SMW功能,对焦的噪音比较大,估计要是在森林里拍动物,不是把动物吓跑,就得担心自己的人身安全了:)总体还比较满意,对得起那个价钱,再说我就是喜欢2.8的恒定光圈。曾经有人说这只头的成像颜色有问题,但从这些郁金香看来,我对此没有疑问。和70-200/f2.8的小钢炮是没法比了,上周在摄影器材展上使用了d200和小钢炮的组合,果然不同凡响。

    拍这张照片的时候,后面确实有一块白色的看板,是中山公园宣传郁金香节用的。我没有打光,当时太阳刚好西下,我找到了一个角度,刚好可以看到阳光照射花瓣形成的光晕。有网友说我前面的花可以再锐一些,我觉得那样就太写实了,没有梦幻效果了。

    有心思,够细腻。

    学习了 :-)
  • cavenli2008 9y

    细腻
  • Natalie Ann 9y

    @SKS:1.3公斤的头啊~~照一张照片这么细心的想过,我要好好学习了:)
  • Ben 9y

    @swallowtail, Cavenli2008, Xuqing Kuang:没那么玄乎了,这些都是事后总结的。拍的时候巧合的因素也挺多的:正好有块白板在后面(大多数游客都去拍花海了,很少有人留意这几株孤零零的郁金香),还有天公作美,夕照的角度也正合适。如果不是做studio的话,外景的因素确实很难控制的。

    我一共拍了四张,这是第一张,也是我最满意的。
