    AN, very nice wildflower shot. It looks a bit like Chicory, but I don't think that's what it is.

    Geoff, two very nice ones. That first one is intriguing. I would guess that the triangular purple bit are actually leaves masquerading as flower, while the white bits are the "real" flowers. A great "contraption".

    Wombat, that is an excellent visitor shot. Great colors and sharpness. And that for a "lowly" A80!

    After studying a flower pot yesterday I thought it time to study a girl today. To be exact, Susan with her Black Eyes. She's quite something:


    A bit closer, and her eyes remain very black:

    Very kind words - Gerard - and very much appreciated. I have to admit I sometimes feel a little in the minor league comparing my shots with others psoting shots from much higher spec. cameras. I suppose my dream camera would be a Canon S2 IS. However on the bright side, as you spotted, the A80 has a sharp lens and is very accurate on colours. Also, I do not think I have really reached its and my full potential yet.

    Here is an agapanthus flower head. Canon A80 handheld, macro mode, F/5.0, 1/500s, exposure compensation -1 [and it was a cloudy day]

    regards

    Wombat - that's a great Agapanthus shot. It's in fuller bloom than my one was
    - and I love the delicate shade! I also have a lot of respect for the A80 and the similar other cameras.
    Here's a humble offering from my back garden - small flower - macro and slightly cropped.
    A-200, Macro @200mm, ISO50, F5.6 (sharpest area) 1/15th sec with Anti-shake, -0.3ev

    Geoff - Nice shot of the dianthus and such a tricky colour. Regarding those discussions we had on the forum about saturated colours - I recently tried using the neutral on the white balance setting and it really does make some of the tricky colours a lot easier to capture without saturation.

    Pleased you liked the Agapnthus here is another - almost white but with a subtle violet shading - but not quite in full bloom.

    abhinav, that's an interesting flower. I take it the thing was leaning over? I ike the contrast between the orange flower and the out-of-focus green grass.

    Wombat, these are indeed to very nice Agapanthus shots. Very subtle colors, overcast days are good for that. No doubt, your A80 is doing just fine . Talking about subtle, "agape" is the Greek word for (non-erotic) love, "anthus" is flower, so you've got a quite lovely flower here!

    BTW, I noticed you mentioning white balance. I find that setting the white balance to the actual situation (sunny, cloudy etc.), rather than using Auto, gives much better results. Maybe that has something to do with the saturation effect.

    Geoff, the reds came out quite nicely. And obviously anti-shake is working, otherwise 1/15 is quite "daring."

    My contribution for the day are some garden flowers in the eveing sun, specializing in te pink variety.

    First, this is a shrub:


    As pink plants go, I think we can call this one "Extreme Pink":


    Something that looks a bit like a big pink daisy:


    And finally one of which I even know the name, a Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus):

    Wombat - another lovely Agapanthus. I should have taken more of mine when it was in full bloom! Not quite sure what setting you meen by 'neutral' - I use daylight most of the time - as opposed to cloudy , or Auto etc.
    Gerard - really liked yur latest series - excellent exposre and colour.
    American Nomad - glad you have posted another, nice shot. You said just Point and Shoot have
    you tried any different settings etc yet? - keep posting
