    Lovely shot Phil
    So glad to hear you talk about the fix - I try so hard at times to get the colour, contrast & exposure spot on straight out of the camera - I should let myself a little slack sometimes!!

    Devina - 1st one you nailed a very trick shot as whites often blow out (over expose) and shadows turn dark. You managed to show both quite well here!!

    Thank you! I get what you mean abt the whites coz I'd tried taking some more pictures of other flowers (white ones) and they came out quite terribly...

    Thanks Geoff, I know what you mean about trying to get it right in the camera I often take ages & lots of shots. Smart fix in that case seemed to work ok but it doesn't always work. Here is a shot of the same flower I took this morning. It has opened more now & the colour has faded a bit plus the light was not so early morning yellowy & more indirect. So lots of differences really. Anyway smart fix just washed it out & ruined it completely. I tried just using auto levels & auto sharpening which I think has worked better. The breeze was a problem this morning plus I do hand hold these so with the shady light levels I had to use big apertures & lowish speeds. Might try again later when there is more light and see what the difference is.

    Whatever you did with this one - I love it - you have retained all the light delicate shades as far as i can see.
    I know what you mean about the breeze - it waits untill you have everything just perfectly in focus and framed - then the darn thing flaps back and forth like a thing possesed!!

    Phill, I really like your shot. I've seen so many flowers with shallow DOF that this one really "stands out" The blurred background just makes it perfect.

    Wow, Rooz, I've never seen a flower shot like that! (Of course, I don't think I've ever seen a passion flower lol) Seems like you're getting into some very unusual, abstract shooting lately. Is it a temporary "stretch" for you, or is it what you're really interested in? (I think it's cool by the way)
