    Here's another pansy. Taken this morning, this is the third attempt.!
    The first was at -0.3ev and the centre detail wash washed out. (Dark colour, dark background - I should have known!!) Shutter speeds were getting a bit slow for the breeze - so I changed from iso50 to iso100 (one stop). Then the final exposure was at -1.3ev, f3.5 and 1/80th sec
    This image looks the most like the actual flower - so that for me is target achieved. Comments appreciated.

    Lovely shots Geoff and Bald Eagle and in fact everyone - anticipating every new posting.

    I found the central markings on my viola shots confused me at first as they are actually quite fuzzy and I thought my shots were out of focus.

    Here is some cherry blossom - with many thanks to Geoff Chandler for taking the time to educate me regarding the interaction of the zoom and macro functions. This shot uses both which probably accounts for the DOF.

    Good detail - these sorts don't always come out so well - the white can wash out and lose detail. Nice shot - keep them coming...

    Thanks Geoff - I was quite surprised by being able to see both the stamens and their shadows. However, it was more by luck than good management as I accidently left the camera on a pre-set I had been using which had -2/3 exposure compensation. Another lesson learned if only by accident ;-)

    Geoff the Pansy can be a tough one to capture accurately. I was able to with my A95, see PBase Gallery below but mine all died and passed on before trying out with the Digital Rebel XT.

    Well yours certainly came out well. Nice shots - I also like the A-95, I might have had one in a different life timeline - but I needed the wide angle when I last bought a camera - and the first time around I wanted a big zoom.
    Good job with yours - and the other shots.

    Third times the charm... well done. It shows that shooting pansies can sometimes take a lot of patience as opposed to impations. Hey, sometimes I think I'm punny.

    You and the A-200 seem to continue to get it done. Thanks.

    0.5 Dandelion Clock

    This one must be "half past the hour". Sadly it has lost a bit of quality in reducing the size - sharp as sharp on the PC. These seedheads are great fun to photograph as long as you remember not to sigh too heavily when the shot goes wrong.

    Usual setup Canon A80, indoors, natural light, tripod, cup of tea, some biscuits.
