    Lovely shot Rense - it's always encouraging to see them in bloom. Same setup as before?

    Thank you Pete! No, I made this one with the Bellows-Takumar 100/4 on the Auto-Bellows, handheld....

    Hand-held! Impressive. Nice selective focus you achieved and I like the soft out of focus background. Really works well I think.

    Nicely Done Rense, The DOF is just right to pick out that leading inner petal. I've not used a bellows before but I can imagine the double whammy of increased magnification and longer exposure make hand held shots quite difficult.

    Thanks Paul! I don't use my bellows very often (read: almost never), but I like the sharpness and colour rendering of the Bellows-Takumar.... And seeing the results, I might use it more often from now.....

    This is one of the best shots of snowdrops that I've ever seen. Great comp and focus.

    Loving the way the subject pops off of the OOF backdrop - and that lovely color grad in the background - gorgeous!
