Dang Saly! You make it virtually impossible to pick a favorite; but I'd have to say #1 is mine. All are beautiful!

Beautiful shots Saly! You always do a great job with shots of the Common Cabbage, a very difficult subject to get right.

The colors look so vivid and all the captures are so clear, good job.

Thanks lily, square one, geoper, I do have my PICT ADJ set with Saturation bumped up by one notch. I also try to slightly underexpose my shots which seems to bring out the colors a bit more.
