pretty much describes this one... shot from a tripod, 12x zoom with Nikon 6T, at 1/80 and f2.8, natural light on overcast day. cropped, some noise reduction, and a touch of sharpening. the background is actually the rest of the English Laurel hedge this leaf is part of, but the close-up lens makes it a nice, nearly homogenous green...

Interesting! Unique from the greenness (or is it greeness? Hmmmm) of it, perhaps the greenest photo I've ever seen. I will take this as an omen for an Eagles victory next week!:G

Nice one squirl033, its great how the 6T throws the background out of focus. If I could offer a few suggestions though. I tend to always use f8 to maximise depth of field and I also believe it helps image quality. Photos ive taken at full zoom using f2.8 always seem a little soft. If you use f8 then the flash is a must, while I use the sunpak 383 I have had success with the FZ10 onboard flash as well. Its just a matter of playing with the flash intensity to get things right. Hope you dont mind the comments. Keep up the dew drop photos, I love them! When its cold and wet outside and you cant take photos then take photos of your old photos through dew drops!:|:-)

any and all comments welcome, Treemonkey! that's how we learn! i've been fooling with the 6T this evening (see a couple of my other posts), using the FZ'z onboard flash diffused with a piece of paper over the flash... seems to do a pretty fair job of limiting the harsh,blown-out highlights i'd get with the flash alone. and i think you're right... f8 does seem to be the best choice for the 6T for clarity, even with very shallow subjects...

Nice one squirl033, keep it up and thanks for the diffuser idea.

Thanks for the tips Treemonkey, I hope to have my 6t in a week so I can use all the tips I can get.
