Snapshot Voyager is about my own personal photography journey. I am always looking to try something new, inquisitive as to how it works, and to the end results I might achieve.

Banksia focus – Which is better?

I have no idea which of these shots is better.  Does focusing on the tips of the flower or the centre of the flower work best?  No idea, but I like both of them.

The banksia is indigenous to Australia and this very healthy plant is growing in my parent’s large garden in Mt Gambier, South Australia.  

I shot this with a Nikon D2X and a Micro-Nikkor 55mm f2.8 manual focus lens at f2.8.  Even at f2.8 this lens is excellent for sharpness colour rendition.  If you find one, buy it - they are a bargain given their level of performance.

  1. Like both. But, I love very thin depth of field pictures, so my preference is the first picture.
