I'm not sharing this because I think it is good or technically perfect. I wanted to show what can be done on a completely overcast day. This is a quick shot that I didn't use a tripod for and the shutter speed was 1/20s.

It was 7:30pm and cloudy. I shot this with a little digicam.

yep, overcast days are a great time to forget about sweeping vistas and landscapes and concentrate on the details.. it really brings out the natural beauty of the colors without annoying surface shine, shadows, etc.. plus if shot in the morning orevening, it can impart some nice warmth, helpful for some subjects..

Fantastic colours and OOF area behind. Amazing from a small digicam. Framing is perfect and complements the shot. I think you were playing games with us with your earlier flower shots Rodney ?

Rodney,

Do you mind me asking how you create the thin white and purple lines you have bordering your shot. I have tried but not managed this in PS CS. Also I cant find the copyright symbol, like the one you have on your water mark. Sorry this is not really about your photo.

Good point about about morning and evening warmth. Thanks for mentioning it.

Nope, I was not playing games earlier. My first flower shots were posted here and I had no clue what I was doing. I started shooting flowers to be helpful to those here that are interested in shooting flora. I always use my low end equipment so the gear will not give me an advantage.

The white border you see is a 1 pix purple, 1 pix pink and 1 pixel light green stroke. Each are created as individual borders.

To insert the copyright symbol, hold down the Alt key while entering 0169
