Hi Greg,

It's always a pleasure viewing your images.

I hope people take the time to view the images in your gallery as well as examine the EXIF data. A lot can be learned from "a master" at creating remarkable images.

I really like the 2nd image.


Zig

Thanks, guys!

the poppies are getting to be a favorite right now. The backside of one caught my eye several days ago and I got the idea of doing a series of them from the back. I think I'm gonna pick 4 of them when I am through, make 11x14 prints, frame and hang them as a set in my living room.

The Iris blooms have really been gorgeous as well, and there've been several shades I've had a chance to shoot. The City of Highland Park really goes all out when it comes to Spring and colors. The biggest groups of wildflowers patches are just starting to show signs of life and will provide subjects to shoot for the next few weeks.

....I just enjoy seeing them so much and yes Zig, I've been following along with Greg for going on 5 years now........... viewing, reading, studying, looking in awe, picking favs and re-studying data for those, then trying, practicing, making many attempts and just really 'flubbering' in my efforts.
.
So, basically i've given up replication attempts and simply ENJOY looking at the pictures. Actually I learn quite a lot doing what you suggest and i recommend it to everyone interested in becoming better at this great hobby.

Greg, I think the print set you mention will be very attractive and an interesting perspective on composition. Wild flowers in the hill country will be beautiful this year and around DFW too.

Very well done, Greg-

There is a delicate quality to this series of photos that I find very appealing.

Dittos again Greg.

I am curious about some of the shots. Did you use live view with the articulating screen? Or did you lay down on the ground and shoot upward?

In the case of the two white poppies, I was in a position to lay down. The others were in a raised bed. I sat down on a side walk and shot up. It's easier/preferrable for me to use the optical finder if at all possible.
