Default FZ35 - Late Spring flowers

Most of these were shot in A mode to get short DOF. In some cases, the DOF was a little too shallow for f2.8.

Most were shot with Area-1 focus. Subjects like the first one are very difficult to get right focus because of the lack of a substantive plane. I also tried Spot, and had pretty good results. Anybody have suggestions on the best way to get these shots (short of manual focus - the weakest feature of the FZ35)?

Thanks for looking.

P.S. Sorry I've not posted for a long time. But, I've been here nearly every day and enjoy the offerings of others. I've made lots of shots, but just haven't posted them.

Interestingly, the colors looked a bit washed out on my laptop monitor, but they look beautiful on my large monitor! Love all the shades of blue in #1 of the flower and background, and lovely purples in #2.
