Wild Onion Flowers

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 22 July 2011 in Plant & Nature.

I'm enjoying using my 50mm f1.8 lens. The main advantage over the macro lens is that I can hand hold it and the auto focus works well.

NIKON D300 1/100 second F/1.8 ISO 320 50 mm

To me this is nicely balanced between delicate and chaos. The flowers and tones are delicate but the stems in the background add the natural chaos. Well done.

Those lovely onion flowers again! See how free you are to roam without a tripod? Your EXIF data shows 75mm. Is that because of the crop factor of your camera sensor?

23 Jul 2011 4:27pm

@Julie Brown: Julie: Thanks for pointing out the exif info. You are correct. It says 75 due to sensor. I don't have a full frame camera. Maybe I'll change my exif info so as not to correct for that. What do you think is less confusing? Yes! I love the freedom of not using a tripod!

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

I don't think you need to change the focal length data. It is reflecting what you are seeing through your lens.

I love onions, too! And I love my 50 mm - isn;t it lovely to get away from lugging tripod, etc. some of the time. Love this composition.
