On the 24-12-2021 I went over the river to a place called Buronga and you say this like Bur-wrong-ga
Not too far from there is a place called the Botanic Inland Gardens and they grow all manner of plant from here and overseas.
So these were the ones in flower at the time.
The 1st four are Roses Followed by the Sturt Desert Pea but no it doesn't have a pea in it, then the Sunflowers.
Some of the Sunflower shots are crop job as in the first and 3rd shot of the Sunflower are from the 2nd shot.
And the last one is a crop job from the 2nd to last shot.

I think your lens is not doing justice to what your M3 sensor can deliver, especially given the low ISO values. Are you using any kind of UV filter ? Or are you posting low res versions of your pics ? I see from your sig that you only have zoom glass. Time to borrow/rent a prime for a few days ? Suggest the SEL85F18

These are all set at a low resolution. I don't like some shots I have got with higher ISO so if I can I will keep it as low as I can because I am not one who is in favour of going out and buying program to get rid of noise. For me I find that just a waste of time. I don't use any filters as I don't have them. And on the part of getting a prime lens, Sony isn't that big around my area as Canon is the one here. As for hiring one we have nothing here to do this unless you travel 5 hour to get one and I am not that much of a hurry to do this.
But is what way are you meaning that the lens isn't doing them justice? So if you can fill me in on this I would appreciate that.
