    1/160
    f2.8
    Tamron 17-50

    only pp done was increase the exposure by few clicks.

    i like the background being dark...it creates more emphasis on the flower. I tried to fill it with light, but i start to see noise.

    Does this picture work or the background needs to have some light??

    The focus is fine....its the DOF at 2.8 and the whiteness of the flower which doesn't have much texture to create sharpness...besides i didn't do any pp on it except for for exposure and fill light. :dunno:

    i agree with dylan, the focus is weird.
    also, it may look better if you don't center your subject

    So this is what i don't get....the point that i focus with covered the center of the flower, yet its the petal that came into focus.

    Can i get the camera to focus exactly where i want to or is it more of a close enough focus to the spot intented? Given the size of the focus dot of the camera, does the focus fall exactly on the dot or perhaps below or above it?

    Perhaps the camera moves a bit when the shutter is pressed and the focus shifts??

    I have an Xti btw.

    AF would be a pain because of the angle you are shooting at, petals etc get in the way, either focus manually or take it from slightly higher, more into the center of the flower (would probably be a nicer angle anyway)

    would you consider the original picture i took to be correctly exposed or is it underexposed?
