Landrum The colours and DOF are spectacular! Really beautiful. Wish the the little flybutt were in a slightly different position but nonetheless, a beautiful image! Well done for a first time use of new equipment! Kudos!

Landrum Kelly
*Angel Pure, Angel of Light" (from Gounod's opera "Faust") Thank you, Jan. The amazing this was how easy it was to do. I hope to get a lot better, of course. --Lannie

Pierre Dumas
Nice tender colors! Background well neutralized and yet still there, nice pose, but that diagonal stick or branch should be erased! Cheers Landrum! PDE

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Pierre. Cloning the background branches out would be a nightmare, since then I would have to decide what to do with the leaves growing on those branches. --Lann

Cool colors and very good shot of butterfly

Hi Lannie, I love this photo. The soft colurs and the background / foreground contrast are well executed. I would love to know more about the canon / nikon combo as I use a canon XTI but I'm not too happy with the standard canon lens.

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Kenrick. Not much to tell, really. Just get a Canon EOS-Nikon adapter on eBay (the cheap Chinese kind in my case), put the adapter on the camera, stick the lens on, and fire away. You can't shoot auto, of course. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Thank you, Krissy. Yes, I love this huge Nikon manual focus lens for its creamy bokeh. This was shot from perhaps thirty feet away. --Lannie

Kristina Kraft
Like a Zen garden, soft and gentle with beautiful bokeh of the background. (Bokeh - blurred background.)

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Haig, I have been enjoying your Tour de Force on the "No Words" forum. --Lannie

Haig Tchamitch
Pretty capture from that distance.. the diagonal stick is a bit distracting.. but not a big deal. Trying to pick between operas on the other hand.. :-)

Landrum Kelly
Madame Butterfly This was one of my first attempts using a Nikon 600mm f/4 (manual focus) lens on the Canon 5D body. What a great combo!
