Pine needles

Picked up a used macro lens and I think I'm in love. It's such a different (demanding!) style of shooting - but it's really neat. HOLY COW is depth of field narrow! Haven't done much with it, but I caught this and I really like it. Tell me what you think!

Re: Pine needles

I really like macro shots. Looks good. You are making me regret selling my camera.

This was taken with my Nikon D7000 and Nikon 60mm Micro f2.8. Thanks for the compliments!

Re: Pine needles

Hello Matthew
The 60mm is a great lens but I like the 105 Micro Nikkor . The Bokeh is unbelievable. I shoot wild flowers in ravines and this is my go to lens. My 105 is a very old lens but it still shoots great. If you get a chance to pick one up you'll love it. The new VR version is super but it's over 800.00 dollars. This is a shot I took with the 105. All natural just tweaked in photoshop for saturation.

Re: Pine needles

My next macro will likely be the 200mm - I don't have a genuinely good telephoto, and I wouldn't mind having one that could do double duty. So long as I use them, I don't mind spending money on lenses. I've got a bunch of used primes (including this 60mm) that I picked up for good price, and they're capable of better shooting than I am - much like my firearms, too!

The 105 certainly gets lots of praise heaped upon it - your image provides reason why! Thanks for sharing.

Hello Matthew
Geez thanks just when I finally narrowed my next lens to a 14-24f2.8 or 70-200 f2.8 you throw that lens at me! Checked many sites and it gets glowing reviews. Everybody says the Bokeh is stunning except Ken Rockwell go figure? Now to find a mint used one! Craig's List here I come. Here is a review site I like.
