    Hi everyone

    Geoff - glad to be of help - let me know how it works out.

    Jeff31 - once again a great series of shots - like the new style. How do you get that shadow effect?

    As always love your colours & water droplets look great.

    Your final post is my personal favourite - colours perfect, presentation great once again! well done. look forward to seeing your posts - do you have an on line gallery we can have a look at?

    Kewtpie - your framing looks great - if I can be of any help please feel free to email me or send me a pm. What camera are you using and what settings?

    Hey Val-

    I have been posting pix recently that were taken with my Canon S410, using the p & s mode, and using the close-up mode. I started with an S30 and just loved it. My church asked me to be their photographer a year ago spring, and I had to have something with a bigger flash, so I got a G5 and a speedlite 420. It seems to be doing the job just fine there. My goal is a DSLR, Canon of course. Still not sure which one.
    I've been doing some pix of my kids and shot my first wedding this past Feb. (talk about nerves!). Visited my friend in Yakima, WA in May and got on this flower close-up kick. She wanted something to enlarge and frame for her house...
    Anyway, I love taking pictures, just would like to figure out how to make a living at it.
    Take care,
    Kristy

    Val - I tried the instructions out this morning before work - I managed to invert and blur etc - but couldn't find the one thing I wanted - a Border!
    This was in Serif - so if anybody knows how to draw a border around a selection in Serif I would be grateful. I switched to PSP and found I couldn't open this particular picture as it seemed to think it was an Internet Explorer file!! I checked the properties and is was a JPG - at this point I was running out of time - so I tweaked the surround a bit more by reducing the saturation and mildly lightening and have posted the result so far. Maybe one of my other Graphics programs will allow me to do a border - I will try later when I have time again
    Meanwhile hope you like the pic...

    With PhotoShop, shadow on layer.


    Ok, now a last one because i'm not very convinced by this style.

    Great shots everyone - I enjoy and learn from every single one.

    Here is another indoor shot this time of a Nigella flower. Canon A80.

    Jeff,
    I'm guessing you added a drop shadow to the flower? I would probably then have "raised" the left most petal of the flower above the frame. Sort of like having the flower floating above it all, but that is just me.

    Just took this one. No tinkering, just scaled from RAW file.
    I quite like it myself.

    A few days ago I posted some drippy Touch-Me-Nots. In addition to the ones I showed there, the Pink and the Yellow varieties, there also is a very nice orange/yellow one, called Spotted Touch-Me-Not (Impatiens capensis). It is also called Jewel Weed, for reasons you can probably gather from the pictures.

    Here is the whole plant, beside a waterfall:


    A close-up from the side, the flower is bashfully hiding from the sun:


    And from the front:

    Gerard - those are lovely shots - could even have gone in the Waterfall thread.
    Val - I guess that's the answer - I had tried the pen but it wasn't quite right - but I was in a hurry - I will try again when I get a moment...
    I will be a bit (totally) quiet next week as I am off to La Rochel (France) for a break for a week - hopefully I should get some decent shots while we're away >>>
