My wife and I spent a few hours at the "Hunter Valley Gardens" near Cessnock NSW (The state of New South Wales in Australia for our non aussie members) the other day and had a very enjoyable time.
Here are a few snaps.

My adapter and filter just arrived today so no, those shots were standard FZ20 without the hood.

Can't wait to try out this new Hoya Pro polarizer

Thanks for the kind words.

Every shot is just gorgeous. The FZ20 really shines when there is excellent sunlight. What did you do or use to make that drop shadow frame which looks like a blurried depth of field from the orginal picture.

Everyone simply beautiful.

I've just coppied what I've seen other posters with more imagination do

I use Paint Shop Pro and firstly blur the border then apply 3d effect "buttonize" then "drop shadow".

Just play with the settings until you find something you like.

Hope that helps and thanks for the kind words.

I have more photos but don't want to make life difficult for dialup users. Perhaps I could start a second thread tomorrow if there is enough interest.
