    Water Diamonds

    took this shot of water beading on leaves after a shower yesterday, Yesterday's pic-of-the-day?
    Really like the starburst on the left edge of the large bead. Taken with the kit lens (18-105).

    Thanks DPR. One of these days I'll hit Point Lobos on a brighter day. On the other hand, it kept setting the exposures fairly easy.

    A similar shot looking West (no sunshine on this horizon...)

    The 18-105 works well in your hands. A very nice shot.

    A Very Special Lady

    Took this candid portrait Last Saturday at our church picnic. One of a series of 4 taken as she climbed this fountain. Queen of all she surveys.

    Nice composition Falcon, if you don't mind my saying it, if the chance comes up to get a similar shot, a bit more open would have helped as only 1/250th at F8, ISO 400 and 340mm equivalent has cost you a lot of sharpness.

    Other shots in the sequence were sharper. I am not exactly sure why this one was a bit soft unless the lens decided at that precise time to 'hunt' for focus. I did have to tweak lighting a bit as her face was quite shadowed. I did like the shot otherwise and her family loves it despite what I see as technical failings.

    And to be honest that's all that counts.

    I believe Joe McNally once said his most famous image wasn't even in focus.

    This is a slice-of-life shot that will live on forever. It will never happen again.

    Excellent!
