Really like #1. Is that a hydrangea? Looks like nice weather in your part of the world.

Hello Saly & banksy,

Thanks for the comments. I'm a bit getting used to with FZ40.

@Banksy: Yes, It's Hydrangea. We can call it summer now in Nor Cal, last week was cold and rain a bit though.

Sure JJ, Please do not forget to bring some wines. I'll fire up for BBQ. I just wanted to mention that I'm an amateur, just learning from the forums and practicing for good results. Please correct if anybody has better suggestions. Thanks Y'all...
