Beautiful, John! Would you mind sharing how you lit this shot? Thanks
Thanks! The flower was placed on a light table, so it's lit from below/behind together with natural morning light that came in from the garden doors. Not a very sophisticated setup, to be sure, but it seems to work...

The further adventures of Wrong Tool for the Job. The good news - a pair of red-tailed hawks are nesting outside my window. The bad news - the sun rises right behind them and all my long glass is old and flareful. So here is a hawk nest at sunrise. X2D, Mamiya 645 300/5.6 ULD @f/8.

You can just see that one of them is unhappy with the observation.

Last weekend, I took the plunge for the Phase One 28/4.5 AF Aspherical and I'm going through some testing shoots right now ... I could return the lens in the next 2 weeks if I were to be unhappy with the results.
But the first tests seem to give rather fine results, maybe because my IQ140 has a crop sensor, and thus I avoid using the extreme corners ...

Without further ado, here's one of the first shots, and I'm rather pleased with it ...
