Re: The Rose. Thank you Graham. Couple of years back I bought a book on Macro photography by Ross Hoddinott, whilst browsing the many images I noted he had used 300 to 400 lenses for many of his shots then cropped them down, also that he used high ISO settings. The rose was shot as the sun was going down. There are now three dedicated macro lenses in my cupboard, so all I wanted was another string to my bow whilst not carrying them......Regards Mike.
