Italy in Bloom

Wasn't really sure where to post these so....

Working on close up shots (not macro) and decide that flowers would make a good subject.

Both images were taken in Italy.

This first one in Tuscany. Image number two, was taken in San Gimignano. There were huge fields of sunflowers along a very quiet country road. Just had to stop.

    Hi Gato, I especially like #2. Nice light and framing.

    Great sharpness on both, nice lens what are you using?

    Very nice work. I find the framing in #1 to be fairly distracting but both images are excellent.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Thanks everyone I appreciate your comments!

    Juano, you asked about the lens I was using. For these shots I used a AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G lens.

    I had my trusty Nikon D300, coupled to a Manfrotto Hydrostatic Ball Head, mounted on a Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 Tripod. I took the shot using a Nikon MC-36A Multi-Function Remote.

    Thanks again everyone!
