Default Rio Samba Rose

I'm finally getting some decent roses. This is a Rio Samba.

This is just for fun. Not any type of "test" or "comparison". I shot the first two with the E-620 and FL-36R (bounced).





These are with the HS-10. The first one is with no flash using existing light from the window on a rainy day. *The second is with ONBOARD flash undiffused in any way.

Thanks, Dustin. I like 'em all because I'm hard-pressed to decide. That's mainly the reason I posted all of 'em. heheheh

I have unlimited storage on my webhost where I back them up AND host these from. I do store them locally but have them backed up to an external drive. When I first got into this obsession, I had a hard drive crash. I'd been an IT professional for over 25 years and was not doing back-ups. How smart is that? Something I'd preached to all my clients I, myself, didn't do. Like playing Russian roulette. You can bet I have SEVERAL back-ups. Maybe not of everything but of what I consider my "good" stuff.

If you can fit a second hard drive in your box (and you can get a 1.5TB Seagate from Tiger for $100), I highly recommend Acronis TruImage installed on the second drive. It creates an image of your first drive (every saturday morning for me) and what's great about it is that it adds to the BIOS an option to go directly to the software at boot. So if your main drive is hosed you put a new one in, and copy the image to the new drive at bootup. Amazingly simple.

I wrote a script that does an incremental back-up to my webhost nightly. I usually run it after I'm done culling and editing a bunch I've taken. It works quite well.

Default MrThat's fine as long as you don't have much software installed.

Gary, that's fine as long as you don't have much software installed. My point is that if you do, recovering from a hard drive crash by re-installing the OS and all your software is way more tedious than simply copying the entire image to the replacement drive.

W/o having seen the flower, it's hard to tell which image is reproducing the colors more accurately. I like the 1st and 4th shots with the 4th being my fav. The second shot seems to be a tad bit out of focus.

You picked one from each. The HS-10 reproduced the color more accurately.
