Default Non-closeups from Oct 7 (FZ35)

I do shoot non-macros occasionally....

#1 great spot to rest and reflect...





#2, 3 Robin, not very common in my area. Actually, I've only seen them at this botanical garden.

Nice shots Saly. I think the first one is a nicely executed shot. The benches add nice depth to the image.

I agree with JJ, great shots, but #1 is perfect for the prospective, like a 3D image ! Congrats

Thanks jj and catalex, I really liked the way the benches were arranged and tried different angles, but I liked this one the best.

flyhigh - no filters used, it was a bright clear day and the blue sky is all natural!

What a beautiful spot; and you captured it perfectly! I'd never leave there.

The robin shots are great! I love hearing them sing, it's so cheerful. During the Summer, they start proclaiming the day around 4:30 am! But it's a beautiful way to wake up.

Thanks Lily and Carol, it's my favorite place to visit in the botanical garden I frequent. Here's a view of the pond from a different spot I shot a while ago.

Very nice shots. How do you process your images (which software do you use)?

Thanks Tullio, I use PS Elements. I usually correct my exposure with the Lighten Shadows, Darken Highlights features and then rotate and crop. Too lazy to learn how to use other features.
