Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Mammillaria carmenae: 2 Colour Forms

This is one of the sought-after cacti, all the more so for its form rubrispina with the reddish spines. The form and/or colours of spines within a species of cactus is not unusual but here we have different colours of the flowers too.

The red form is not natural but the result of selective breeding in Holland. It flowers are sometimes pale pink.

I suppose I should have removed the fine silk webbing of the red on but it adds to the stereo experience.

The stereos are crosseye. Not my best stereos for perspective but better than single frame.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/250 at f11, ISO 320, hand-held.

Pleione Vesuvius Leopard

This is immediately recognisable as a Pleione, as they all are. This differs from the previous set of Pleione images in the complexity of the fine structures in the tube but principally by the number and intensity of it spots.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/200 at f11 ISO 400, hand-held.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Thats certainly red.
I dont know if its just me but I find images of red flowers very difficult to get into sharp focus. Perhaps its the camera sensor or maybe just my eyesight

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

I had to play with the exposure correction to get this photo as it is. In LR, I have barely tweaked it at all, just a crop basically....

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Two Is Company

The three buds on this Echinopsis developed at the same rate so I thought I would have the ideal three in the frame. but it was not to be. The images were taken on three consecutive days. My emphasis has been on control of the highlights of the white flowers.

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9 or f8, hand-held.

Harold
