|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I have just bought myself a Tamron 180mm macro lens and thought I would try it out locally. The local Nuclear Power Station has a nature reserve attached to it so I went to try my luck there on what was a dull day. Sheltering under a bush from a light shower I found this delightful Thistle, fully open,(Thanks to 'LordPotty' I now know it is a Centaurea montana, a variety of the cornflower family) and so tried a few pictures. The grass stalk across the top is a bit intrusive but I am happy with the flower itself. See what you think.|
Lens - Tamron 180mm macro, ISO 400, 180mm focal length, Metering - Pattern, Auto exosure, Auto White Balance.

Your lens works well ... this is a beautifully clear shot.
Its not a thistle though.
I believe what were looking at is Centaurea montana, a variety of the cornflower family.
Very nice photo though.
Hello Peter, nice compo, rich in colors and details.
Hello Peter! Perfectly sharpness and lightness. Very good shot. Best regards!

Hi Peter, I love the pov on this Thistle flower, it is so crisp and sharp against a perfect dof. Your new lens seems to be doing a good job. Light, colour and intricate detail is amazing. Great shot all round!
