I've had the fz5 exactly a month and havebeen trying to make it prove itself a worthy successor to my beloved fz1 with on-again/off-againsuccess. Today was an unexpectedly beautiful day. Turned out to be lucky as well - Friday 13. Complete series of 14 shots at http://www.ishots.net/fz5/may13/Click on medium size images there for originals.

Thanks for the comments. Agree, the Lily of the Valley shot is a special shot. Everything fell together. A little experience and a good camera with a good lens and a beautiful sunny day. Most of the Lily of the Valley plantswere in deep shade (they do not like alot of sun). The sunlight was briefly hitting acouple ofbunches of blossoms so they were well highlighted against the (what became) essentially black backgound and the sunlit leaves. I was worried about the bottom leaf being too much of a frame job, but with digital you can try anything. The bottom leaf turned out to be critical. I'm not a professional photographer and havezero asperations to become one (Money Kills :evil. But if I were, that one would be in my portfolio. It's wonderful and humbling thing to capture beauty like that. Thank you Mother Nature and thank you Pansonic/Leica! And thank you fellow forumites!

Yes, f8; 1/200s. Most of the Lily of the Valley plantswere in deep shade (they do not like alot of sun). The sunlight was briefly hitting acouple ofbunches of blossoms so they were well highlighted against the (what became) essentially black backgound and the sunlit leaves. Because the white blossoms were so bright in an otherwise dark situation, the shutter speed was fast even stopped down to f8which resulted in a near black bakgound. Try it.
