Purple - 青紫
Nelson, New Zealand
Tamron SP MF 500mm F8 Reflex (55B) + Tamron SP 2X Teleconverter (01F)
F16, 1/90, ISO-400
On the tripod of course.
This lens and the teleconverter combination gives me a maximum of 1:1.5 macro capability. The lens itself can do 1:3 at 1.7m from the subject. It has quite good working distance and often I do not need a flash, which is very good.
This is a hydrangea with pale purplish blue colour.
A colour tone was manipulated using the split tone tool with LR to make this effect.
