Daffodils Fill the Hills

Gibbs Gardens 031415d copy

Daffodils fill the hills.
I had in mind some specific images that I wanted to shoot at Gibbs Gardens the other day. Naturally with a macro lens, you want to do some close up images. One thing I do to test a lens is to shoot at a wider aperture, f5.6, and back up a little and see how the lens performs edge to edge, and then how the out of focus area looks as well. I am very impressed with the details achieved with the lens on the edges but just as impressed with the background blur or often referred to as Bokeh. It is critical for me to have a macro lens that can do those two things, among others, because seeing detail is important but how it handles the rest of the scene is equally important.
