Close-up into same flower as Echinops 01. Here the depth of field is as wide as possible, and the image of the flower is sharp from front to back. Compare to the previous image, Echinops 02, where the depth of field is very shallow; only a small part of the flower is in focus.
Close-up into same flower as Echinops 01. The narrow depth-of-field makes for a sharp center in this picture, but noticeably more blurry toward the back of the flower. Compare to the next image, Echinops 03, where the depth of field is maximized.
Is this for real? I bought this at my local Walmart. There was not much useful info on the label, except that it came from South America. Hand-tinting or painting these flowers by their growers makes them quite colorful, and the RGB lighting trio adds to the vibrance.
Here's the full moon of November 2015 coming up behind Nubble Light (Cape Neddick; York; ME). My location is Long Beach Ave, York Beach, about 1.6 miles across the water from the lighthouse, and about 228,000 miles from the moon.
This photo is at 1/8 sec, f/8, ISO 400 stepped down by 1.7, using a 600mm lens.
Photo'd using a custom (and long since erased!) white balance setting on the camera, under flourescent lighting. Reminds me of "tungsten" settings, which assume the light source is too red. Compare to Chrysanthemum 02 Version A.
