Hi!

Finally, spring seems to be here.
The first blossoms are poking out.



Shot with the Jupiter-37A (thus the title) at my EOS350D. Please remember, it is not a macro lens!

Nice shoot Carsten ! Can you provide a 100% crop too or a full size image link ?

Sure!

Here you are:





100% crops
RAW, auto settings in ACR, details settings 0
no pp, no sharpening

Just the lens and the CMOS. Wink

f4 or f5.6 (can't remember), 1/200 sec, ISO200, freehand

Very nice, I like the background and matting too. Is the BG PS'ed or did
it come this way? The J37A seems to hold its own for flower pics, very
good detail.

Hi,Bill.

No, there was no pp of the bg.
With the whole picture I just cropped it, adjusted the curves a little and did some resharpening after resizing the pic. That's it.

Just grass a couple of metres away and a rather open aperture. Wink

Certainly yielded great results, and the bokeh must be better than first
supposed. What fstop was this, f4?

Perfect exposure Carsten, you kept all the color nuances.

The J-37 is such a great little lens, you can do almost everything with it.

Hi!

I can't remember. I took more shots of this blossom.
It either was f4 or f5.6...
