it was 118 here this weekend and it amazes me that the native plants seem to thrive. This is a cactus in my yard .... the spring flowers have morphed into colorful seed pods.

Nice shot. Personally I'd increase the saturation and contrast a bit to compensate for the rather insipid light under the grey sky.

Cheers,
Ollie

thanks for your comment Ollie .... I"m trying Raw format and there is a learning curve. This was about as good as I could get it, but hey, it can just get better!

I see you're enjoying your Rebel XT, Drewaz. Though Ollie's suggestionsare bound to improveit,still, a very bright, clean image with noticable DOFboost indeed.Btw, was that the kit lens on, at the time of shooting?
