Both images shot fairly close at 200mm (300mm equivalent).
Still shooting with the telephoto at 200 mm (300 e) and getting some interesting painterly effects.
Storm blew through here for a day and the flowerbed that looked like the below in a recent post now looks like this
I’ve already posted a picture of this flowerbed on 97th street but, passing it again last weekend, I still wanted to try and capture the scope and profusion. While I’ve captured more of the flowers here, it’s actually diminished the impact of the earlier close-up, an object lesson in composition.
A lovely Spring scene but it requires focusing narrowly and ignoring all that surrounds it.
