Nice shots - good colours and I had to say anything its maybe crop the right side a little and the bottom (if you want to keep the aspect ratio - so there is a little more room, compositionally - in the direction the boy is looking. Whether is people or animals/birds, dry to leave room in the direction the subject is either moving or looking.

Nice shot ~

Thank you sir, I'll keep that in mind. :-)

Promised I'd get back to the train tracks near sunset in the above post, and I did. Shame on me, these aren't with the 70D, but I wanted to share them with friends on this thread.

Thanks Rosey for the comment...must be fun working with the Russian lens.

Fun and challenging :-) You can pick them up cheap on ebay if you're interested in playing. Mine is a Helios MK44-2 58mm. The MK44-2 is the screw mount, and you can buy adapters to the EOS system, either chipped or not for focus confirm.

Hi Rose you can use the rule of thirds lines, but my setup with flowers is to use liveview
with max zoom on a tripod. Than i look for the best possible composition, just by walking around
at high/mid and low angles. When i found the sweet spot(s) i focus manual at max zoom
on the part(s) that lead/attracts my eyes. Mostly i take several shots with different apertures. Force my iso to 100.
With AF it's difficult because it's hard to focus on the part you want to be clear/sharp in the composition.
With 20 + MP you can crop afterwards to your liking. I always take my macro tubes with me you never
now if some insect(s) ect will give a extra dimension to the photo(s).
When i use AF in some occasions (by hand) than i use spot meting with the rules of thirds in the viewfinder,
i shoot on AI servo high speed shooting (for higher keepers rate) with enough shutter speed i turn of
the IS or OS else-why it stays on.

Hope it gives you more insight.

Thanks Richard. NZ is so windy I can rarely shoot flowers outside unfortunately, and I try to handhold a lot. Need to get out more with tripod.

Still with the Russian lens on the 70D: quite enjoying some of it's little idiosyncrasies, especially with the bokeh.

With the tripod you can use the trick with the umbrella to deflect the wind. 10 sec delay will give you the right amount of time to place or hold the umbrella to protect the flower from the wind.

Right thanks - also probably need a diffuser, I guess the umbrella can fulfill both functions?

Very colorful, Will !
I remember a while back .... you posted a photo that was purposely out of focus.
Taking that concept to an extreme, I took this photo in the autumn woods.
It was done totally in-camera. I feel that it's very Will-ish  :p
