Day 65 I

65/365

 

Everyday I drive by this field that is covered with a variety of daisies. I keep wanting to stop, but I'm usually on my way to or from work. This weekend I had a chance to take Cooper out, so we stopped by the field so that I could get some shots.

 

There were so many neat pictures that I couldn't decide which one to choose for my 365, so I uploaded 2!

 

Less than 2 weeks before baby #3 is due and the house is bustling in preparation. I think it has thrown our other two off because they can probably sense that things are about to change :D

 

Camera: Nikon D90 | Sigma 150mm(ƒ/2.8) | ƒ/4.2 | ISO 200 | 1/320s

    I like them both. In the previous shot I like the petals more, in this shot I like the center details. Also great color in this shot, the blue and yellow go well together.

    Great detail on this eric - fabulous colours. What is the 150mm lens like? Expensive? Looks very fast to me

    Thanks everyone!

    I really like the Sigma 150mm. I have some questions about the sharpness for non-macro shots, but I haven't done a formal evaluation. Having a prime 2.8 lens @ 150mm is nice, I'm hoping to be able to use it for portraits, sports, etc.

    As for price, it was $150+ less than the Nikkor 105mm, but even at that, it is still a good chunk of change ;)
