Default My Mother-in-law's tongue

Hi guys and gals!
Yes, it's a few camera-phone photos... The Pentax K7 takes 2-4 weeks delivery... its coming!
My mother-in-law, bless her heart, was over a visit... she brought me a gift, a plant called: Anopinkieli, which my wife absolultely assures me means: mother-in-law's tongue! :spiteful: And, in keeping with being a good son-in-law, I thought I would try to photograph my mother-in-law tongue. The first photo begins with with a straightforward picture of it, the rest, well I always like to experiment with lighting, so I adjusted the exposure setting... etc... I actually dead chuffed in that I managed to use a polarizing filter on one. I know this plant is not anything to write home about, I just want to make my mother-in-law "famous" :taunt: :biggrin: :spiteful: At least I can say "mother-in-law" in Finnish correctly... Holy cats, it is the Finnish word for father-in-law that gets me more trouble than you can shake a stick at... I tell people, "He my father-in-law is coming over for a visit." However, I get the word "father-in-law" and "monkey" really mixed up... Not my fault that jok'n language is the most difficult in all of Europe... Oh well, enjoy... the Pentax is coming... thanks for be ing patient with me...
All the best.
Ned

I like the first one Eetu. Very natural colors and pretty sharp.

Thanks Ordo. Yeah, I like the first one too... but it was fun to experiment with exposure settings and the flash to darken the background... you can see that window is right by the table, and yet the background is fairly dark.

Thanks. Oh, I am still waiting on the Pentax K7, but I am also getting all the other necessary things, such as memory card, memory card reader, etc. Just waiting for the the camera and software to arrive.
