Queen Anne’s lace (Daucus carota)

Here’s a photo of Queen Anne’s lace (Daucus carota) taken with the Nikkor 50mm f1.8D. I took this photo whilst out on one of our walks with the dog.

It’s a good image to see how sharp the Nikkor 50mm f1.8D is, and to study it’s tonal qualities. I think it performs quite well in both cases. It’s not as sharp as a macro lens of course, but I think it produces enough detail to show the hairs on the flower stalks and the flower stamens are quite clear. The bokeh is nice too. I took this photo without a tripod.

I think that this photo also looks fine in colour, but I feel it also lends itself to be in black and white. I post-processed it as a colour toned greyscale image too and that worked well in many different tones.
