Hi Walter,I love hawthorns, one of our most beautiful endemic species that is also marvelous for bonsai practices. What a beautiful trunk this one has, great natural styling too, it brings out the best of the typical characteristics of hawthorns.anyway i have 2 myself, more modest ones offcourse, and between (overall) age of 10 tot 30 years. However i dont succeed in getting them to flower... :( do you have special care or attention you put on your hawthorns to get them to flower? How do you cut the twigs/shootling every year? any help is welcome.thankxyves, belgium
Walter,Am I wrong or was I remembering of a Micro Nikkor 60 f/2.8 ?Why did you give up such jewel for a Tamron ???
Yves,well, I do nothing special with my hawthorns. Modern substrate, aggressive watering and feeding. Full sunshine all summer long is important. I leave the new shoots in spring for a few weeks and then I cut them back radically. Only when I want to take a photograph of bring to an exhibit I cut earlier. Don't cut after beginning of August.WP
Francesco,because the Tamron is slightly better. Very simple.WP
Great pictures!I like the detail of the little insect in the second shot !!!Gr.AukeNetherlands
Walter, could you post a full-resolution photo? The sharpness is amazing.If you are retiring your nikkor, we could negociate it! :DArzivenko.
After about 50 shots I have decided that the new Tamron is clearly better than the Nikon 60 2.8. The sharpness is incredible. The Tamron has a strong tendency to underexpose. So I make every shot with plus 1,0 or even more aperture correction. The auto focus at medium to longer distances sometimes has to be adjusted manually which bothers me. Besides making most outstanding macro photographs it makes most outstanding portrait shots. Which is exactly what we want for bonsai. my Nikon is available on ebay herehttp://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230476569895
I pay EUR 100,00 on it !:D
This will probably go above 280 euro.WP
