Spent a weekend sprucing up the bach house before the really hot weather starts....

Some recent rain down that way has got the grass growing






the banksias of course always have something going


the water tank is on its way out



but the frogs are just chillin'

Very nice set Raf. I like the out of focus foreground flower in #1, it really adds depth to the shot. I think #2 would look a lot better with a more blurred background but easier said than done due to the DoF on these cams. Like the last 2 shots also, especially the frog, nice framing on both of these shots.

While the the in focus subect in #2 appears to be the same as the blurred one in #1, I think they are quite good and are what you had in mind. Not only a nice job on them, but quite innovative.

Just for my benefit, would a bach house and a beach house be the same thing?

Thanks Mark and Jerry. Glad you liked them and yes I was playing around with the manual focus to see what I like best in #1 and #2.

A bach house is a house on the beach for people who cannot type, they are forced to listen to endless repeats of Bach's Brandenbrug Concertos till even that sublime music loses it's beauty and they learn to use the spell check.....,in all seriousness Jerry just a typo...apart from my propensity to murder the English language I cannot spell and my typing makes even what I DO manage to spell incomprehensible.

Nice series Rafael, always fun to play around with the cameras. I agree with Mark's comment on shot number two. If you have a close-up lens attachment you could shoot the shot at full zoom and that should give a very blurred background mush like a DSLR.
I know exactly what you mean about typing and spelling. Thank goodness for Google tool bar and the spell checker.
