Flowers in Botanic Gardens

Its National Day for Singapore, and today, I feature the national flower...the Orchid.

A trip to the Botanic Gardens...with some macro photography of flowers. This time, this time with the GH-2 and the Panasonic Leica 45mm/f.2.8 Macro lens.

Orchids just outside the Orchid Garden...all shot on tripod.

Another bunch of orchids:

The detail resolved by this compact camera system is very good. When compared to the large Hasselblad system, it lacks the micro-tonal abilities of the medium format camera. But for web sized and small prints (less than A3), the resolving power of either system is not a whole lot. Of course, prints larger than A3 will show the Hasselblad system pulling away in terms of performance, resolving more, providing more micro-tonal and micro-contrast...and a much more realistic image.

But for a small package, this one rocks.
