Agreed Rooz, I don't like the blue either but the little bastard flew away after 2 test shots and I couldn't find him again.
I'm sure he's eating my curtains somewhere.

Nice shots, DPR. The details on the insects are quite nice. I do agree that the blue is quite distracting.

The skin tones look a tad off on this one, but its hard to truly judge since she tends to have an interesting skin color (almost a tad 'orange'-ish).

Finally took a trip to Seattle. Here's my best shot from the afternoon (and yeah, I suppose this is a dime-a-dozen image, but I prefer "classic".)
Manual focus... out my driver's-side car window at a red light! I got lucky.

Thought I posted this before, might have been in the bird thread.
If it is a repeat, my apologies.

fionndruinne, that shot brings back memories, I went to Seattle right when I was starting to think about getting a camera and yours is a different take on the "dime" shot, well done.
Rich, that's a gorgeous shot. I love the soft lighting.
