Default My first attempt with LC55 ( Part 2 )

Gardenia is my favorite flower, it's unique in everything.

Another nice start with the LC55 Lily.

Keep taking shots and experimenting on how to get the best results. I bet Catalex and Saly can give you some great input on how to get the most out of the LC55.

I wish I could get my LC55 to work. Of all the times I have tried, I have never had one image worth saving.

It has been gathering dust for the past 7-8 months.

Tough subject (all white) in what appears to be limited light condition, you did very well. They almost look like cake decoration!!

My best work is almost always in full sun, to get good detail and color.

Again a great series, I can recommend not to overtighten the subject within the frame for a better composition, by a little 'more space on the sides, use spot metering. The beginning, however, seems really good!

Roger, before putting my hands on LC55, I kept writing down all what Saly, Catalex, LTZ, Clint & all Other members hints & tips about this lens, it really saved me time & effort. Thanks to them all.

Thank you saly for your tip, maybe because the shots were taken inside a greenhouse, I'll take care next time.
