    Thanks AlkaPhunk, I understand where you are coming from on that - however I do have to be very aware of that DOF as I can end up with too much of the subject out of focus if I am not carefull. Just have to be carefull then won't I!!

    This is the sort of Macro I like the A-200 for - natural portrayal of the flower - but with the detail (obviously the orig is better - but it was only @5mp)

    (EDIT - I just went out to the back garden and measured this so you know what sort of flower it is ... I know I'm very sad!! - anyway - from tip to tip of petal it is 1.5 inches)

    Blue meadow

    I'm moving to this house I've bought, it's in this great sacred nature /reserve kind of place. Today I was there and I had to park just where these guys were sunbathing. Not really a macro shot but - my home

    Its amazing if you keep an open eye to the beautiful flowers readily available to photograph.

    These are Coneflower's growing in gardens outside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Took about 60 seconds to compose and snap three images and move on. I almost forgot even taking these.

    Focal Length 125 mm > Sigma 18-125mm
    Exposure Time 1/200 sec
    Aperture f/7.1
    ISO Equivalent 100

    and this is a crop of the above.

    Bluedog, both shots are awesome, the first for the colors,composition and the shallow DOF, the second for the color and extreme detail. great shots.

    LOL ... thanks JTL ... a lot of reviews complained about how the 350D/XT was awkward changing the various control settings but I personally have got it down pat and find it quite easy. The only mistake I find myself doing is the occasional White Balance set wrong but thats where shooting in RAW helps out.

    in clover?

    Hi All

    Great photos of flowers - everyone. Thanks for sharing them - I am really looking forward to every new one.

    Here is an "studio shot" of a white clover head [Trifolium repens]. I am amazed just how beautiful these are when revealed by the camera.

    Canon A80, indoors, Macro mode, Ap f/8, Exp 1/4s, exposure compensation -1and1/3.

    Regards
    Wombat
