    Beautiful colors in those orchids, phistio.

    D Thompson, that shot looks great. Very sharp and clean. Your DOF is dead on. If I'm not mistaken, those are Balloon flowers right?

    Here's a pic of an English Lavender.

    Phistio - great Orchid shots
    D Thompson - lovely delicate White flower shot
    Wall - nicely viewed Lavender from above..
    gerard - like the carpet shot - It's good to have some more
    open views - the Water lilley is good. Also - I really like
    the grains/grasses shot
    Nuvolino - nice flower with droplets

    Well - I'm drying up a little at the moment - I shall also be
    away from the PC for a week next week - but I will carry on dipping
    in this week.
    So for now - a couple of the pansies from Mum's gardens - she's asked that I go back and do some more ASAP

    Audrey II

    Hi Phistio,

    That first orchid shot is really wild. It reminds me of Audrey II from "Little Shop of Horrors.

    Heres a beauty berry plant showing various stages of flowering and going to seed. I bet Bald Eagle has these growing down in his part of Florida too.

    Simple yellow orchid

    Really can't match the quality of the earlier posts, but I'll keep practicing until I get it right. Hope you enjoy looking at these. Comments always welcome. Both were macros; one a supermacro. Both also under exposed.



    This one I clipped the bottom of the pedal.

    Great shots everyone - thanks for sharing them.

    Here is a close up of a delphinium floret.

    Canon A80, macro mode, handheld, Ap. f/8.0, Exp 1/500s, exposure compensation -1/3.

    Great shot BTW
    Here's a problem red - tweaked to correct in curves - I may post a couple of comparisons later...

    Geoff - it is funny that you should have made a similar comment about another of my macro shots many moons ago. I am beginning to think that the A80 is rather good at "finding" light. I do find that nearly all my macro shots have to have the exposure compensation well into the negative values.

    I like your red problem shot and look forward to the comparisons. This saturation problem has intrigued me for some time. My only conclusions, based more on intuition than knowledge, is the human eye must have better colour receptors than cameras [afterall there was many thousands of years of R&D time ] and perhaps the brain does some unsaturating. Just a few musings.

    The following shot of a geranium was spot on histogramwise - with a nice 10% gap at the top end. However, this is not how the flower looked to my eyes at the time - it was much more muted i.e. less intense. Isn't photography interesting

    regards
