    Nice ones, tyger. Very crisp. I especially like the one with the bee.

    In my neighbourhood there grows this Valerian-like plant. They can get quite tall, the following was taken at ey level:


    Here are two close-ups:

    Gerard-

    It is really nice how you set the scene for us and then moved in for the detailed close-ups as well. Very nice, indeed.

    Here is my contribution for the day. This was taken in a supermarket floral department without flash and under flourescent lighting to test the the response of the new Olympus Stylus 800. It actually did a very nice job under some trying conditions. It was shot at F 2.8 @ 1/400th using ISO 1600.

    Keep in mind these pics are mostly Auto mode and the other modes, I still gotta learn how to use manual mode better. I took 120 shots but i'll only share a few.

    Enjoy!!! I LUV THIS CAMERA!!!!!!
    Tyger,

    Your photos are an inspiration! I hope you have fun with your new camera! BTW, I grew up in Toronto (just blocks from Yonge and Bloor)...best you get out to the City Islands while the weather's great!

    yours,

    Julian

    Thanx Julian, that's quite the compliment for a newb as myself! Well, what do you know a fellow Torontonian. I live up in North York now, Donmills and Sheppard area but i'm very familiar with the Downtown area. I'm definitely planning to go to the islands some time soon.

    Sarah - that's pretty impressive stuff! These little Point & Shoots are getting
    better and better and the noise problem is getting less (though I can't
    imagine them matching a dSLR unles they much larger CCD's or CMOS's
    Do you think you'll be trying out the new Fuji 9000 when it comes out??
    I also would like to echo your comments about Gerards presentation - it's
    nice to see the flowers in their natural environment before getting the close up.

    Thumbs up Hi all - first time caller (on this thread) 8-)

    It's so great to see all these wonderful flower photos! Nice to see others producing great pics with 'point & shoot' cameras like my little Canon Powershot A510. Here's my humble contribution - constructive criticism always welcome.

    Sarah, nice to see you back, and thanks for the kind words. That is indeed a very good result for a non-DSLR at ISO 1600. And a nice flower too!

    Geoff, good to see you back too. Interesting that "my" contraption appears on both sides of the ocean. A suppose at some point I'll have to buy a book about local wild flowers so that I can tell what they are.

    Siberian, that is an excellent first flower posting. Nice subtle colors, and quite "different" flowers, well done.

    My contribution for the day is two "post-flower" pictures, aka berry shots:


    As you can tell from the following,it was a rainy day:

    Gerard - excellent berries! - I have really been enjoying your photos on here.
    I will try and get out and take a few more recent things - but I am working
    nights at the moment and it's a bit disruptive...
    Here's a weed to be going on with - taken along the river side in
    Wareham/Dorset/England - Bindweed I believe...
    1-20th sec @f3.5 asa100 200mm A-200 + a touch of curves tweeking, tiny
    bit of USM after resizing.
    As I have mentioned - I geneally only fine tweek, don't like to change the
    character of the pic and often leave alone completely. (Personal choice)
    Edit: - forgot to mention this was at dusk.
