    Its scientific name is Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, a Malvaceae. I don't know the English common name, but the Spanish one is Cucarda. Just look it up by its scientific name and you'll likely find the common name.

    White lilac

    Here is a picture I took with my Canon Powershot S3IS less than a week ago. It was a little windy when I took it, so I didn't get the flower in the middle of the picture, as I wanted. But now, I think this turned out even better, than if it had been in the middle! I like it where you see the flowers like in a row, if you see what I mean?

    I'm not that good at flower names, but I think it's a lilac...a white lilac!

    What do you think? Comments?

    Some good shots appearing here...

    In Ireland, the summer's over - at least for today. It's pouring down outside. This was taken yesterday. Another of the (many) clematises (clematii ???) around our house.

    Thanks, JTL. It's a plain old Nikon D50, with kit lens(18-55 mm; f/3.5-5.6. I'm not sure what my settings were and I can't figure out how to get the info from Nikon Picture Project. Assistance, anyone? Here's the original; I used Mac iPhoto to edit.

    I don't care what anyone says...the optical quality of the D50 kit lens is clearly better than the Canon kit lens. It's a really nice camera and lens for the money...and you're putting it to good use!

    Some flowers from my garden

    OK, so the first one is not from my garden, but I thought I'd throw it in anyway. I always have liked the flowers of grasses, but they can be difficult to capture. Here is one I took that didn't turn out too bad:

    Not that I would mind having a garden with a waterfal in it, mind you .

    This one is from my garden, the flowers of a shrub that makes clusters of tiny pink flowers:


    While I'm on a pink theme, here is another pinkish flower of which I don't know the name:


    And a few that are similar to but different from the previous one:


    The yellow heart of this single peony adds some contrast:


    And I might as well finish with a broader yellow streak, a lily:

    Gerard, nice background in the grass shot. The pinkish flower (No.3) is almost certainl a hardy geranium. She-who-must-be-obeyed grows many different varieties around our house. That particular one grows near our gate.

    Ah yes, now you mention it, it definitely looks Geranium-like, Thanks Glenn.

    In PictureProject, when you have the picture selected in the collection, click the arrow next to Information on the right side of the screen, and in the section next to "Show," make sure "Shooting Data" is selected. Your settings will show underneath it in the window.

    Thumbs up Thanks for the advice

    Just a quick reply to Wall & JTL on my buttercup field shot.
    Wall - I didn't think panorama at the time but it would have been a good idea.
    JTL - no I didn't mind at all you editing my shot, actually thats what I was hoping for. You improved it considerably thanks. With the crop I think you got the panorama feel that Wall suggested & PS really did improve the background.
    Thanks guys that was just the feedback I was looking for it's a shame we don't have a critique forum to put this in rather than sidetracking the gallery threads.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them
