Some shots from today. Monarchs galore! GH2/45 Macro
Are these the results of the lens or are they an over saturation from post processing? Your blacks are much too black, in that there is no detail. Particularly noticeable is the excessive CA (if you had numbered them ) on #3. I had been inquisitive of this lens versus the new f/1.8 with a macro converter lens. It now makes me pause.
What I find in the beauty of a butterfly is the wings. Granted, head shots are interesting, but to me the wonder is in the whole.
Thanks for sharing.
Awesome shots! How did you get so close with that 45mm? Did you do much cropping, or maybe a diopter?
Lovely shots. I see lots of detail in the blacks...not sure why Kundalini is not. The dynamic range of shots is quite remarkable, as I see it.
I don't see any CA either — just colorful reflections.
It must be me then. Apologies for an irrelevant post on my part.
There is definitely no CA in these. The blacks are dark, but on a calibrated monitor, you can see detail. These monarchs just suck light, though...the blacks are just true, pure, non reflective black.
I'd have loved to have taken some more full wing shots, but these monarchs had been tagged, and so the wing underside wasn't really worthy if shooting, and I've never liked the top down angle on butterflies.
