Quick post for you today, and a rare freebie. This image was shot today, and has not been cropped or edited (except to process the RAW image file for display and add a watermark). Feel free to download the full size image which you’ll find by clicking on it, and have a look around the frame at the level of detail and smoothness that you can expect to see from the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 SP Di VC USD. Particular points to look out for include the out-of-focus buttercup in the foreground; the rain drops bouncing from on of the flower heads, and the fly resting on a grass stem below the orchid. I decided that downscaling this image would be doing the lens a disservice. There are no other tricks at play here, just the lens, as supplied, and with the vibration control running.
