    Hi,

    I woke up early this morning, and was spoiled with some beautiful sunrise light in the garden.

    I shot this one with the G1 coupled to my MF Nikkor 300/2.8 and a 2x teleconvertor TC-300. Almost no further cropping done

    sized_P1090455-1.

    C&C highly appreciated, as always :biggrin:

    C U,

    Rafael, I like this very much - it looks almost as though it was painted and has an old fashioned feel to it. Good for you for taking advantage of the day - and the light.:thumbup:

    Hi Rafael, beautiful shot. Shot with 1200 mm equivalent lens. Unbelievable, thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend.

    Lovely shot Raf, the composition is well done and the oof background sets the blooms off nicely. I checked the exif but of course it is manual focus but I liked that it gave the shot date as 30 Dec 1899. A real period piece.
