Pagoda of Poppies

Pagoda of Poppies, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

Briefly noted: I used my 200mm f/4 telephoto macro lens to focus on the more distant poppies while letting the foreground poppies blur. The isolation of the sharp subject from the out-of-focus closer flowers creates a painterly effect.

The exposure details: f/14 at 1/250 of a second and ISO 100, tripod mounted. The “tripod mounted” with this lens almost doesn’t have to be said, you can’t reasonably hand hold this heavy piece of glass. The good news: the lens is equipped with a very convenient tripod collar. In my opinion, all lens should have one.
