Hello guys! Here is a flower pic from my backyard. I used my FZ20 (my 20D was fogging up too much being that it is stored in an air conditioned room). I just hit the quick fix on my pp software, and it made the background really blue, but it looks surreal (esp. being that I know what the original scene was) and I like it. Let me know what you think (constructive or otherwise!). Nancy

It reminds me of the invading spore plantsfrom the British Si Fi movie "Day of the Triffids" that was filmed back in the 60s.

Nancy,

It looks like it has two stems and that competes with the flower itself.

I understand this is a quick shot. I cannot read the exif with the computer I am using right now. What settings did you use and what type of focus? How far away were you from the actual flower and what zoom if any did you use.

It looks a bit soft to me and the colors though bumped up looks good.

Could use a tighter crop as well.

if u look closely u can see the other flower attached to the end of the second stem. I was very close using macro, plus the flowers were blowin' in the breeze. I had to set the ISO to 200 b/c @ 80 it was too blurry in the macro mode. It was shot at 1/250 @f4. The focal length (35mm equiv) was 82mm. And I used the spot focus and focused on the center of the flower.
