    This set is beautiful Ron! The colors and forms are just astounding. Thanks for bringing them here. Nearly every flower in Phoenix is wilted by now, and I miss 'em. Are all of these from California?
  3. Hi Chris,

    Yep... all of these were shot in California (at various times, of course). If you have time, wander around that folder -- considering that I only put 100 in there, it's pretty comprehensive.

    Thanks for the compliment :^)

    Thanks for sharing, Ron. Boy, the tulip is an oldie but a goodie. You haven't had the 80-400 for a while now.

    Especially the rose
  10. Beautiful shots, Ron. I agree with Gale, the rose is my favorite.
  11. I am not a big fan of roses in my garden, but your shot is lovely!
  12. i like the rose alot
  13. Ron,

    Those are wonderful, as I expect when I look at your images.:smile:

    The reds look a little too hot in the tulip shot however, like you lost some detail in the red channel. I checked in PS, and sure enough the red channel shows a largish spike on the right.

    Was that by design? I remember from your e-book that you talk at fair length about avoiding clipping of saturated colors.

  14. Ron, what an awesome series! The colors are spectacular. Love the detail in every one. The tulips and coneflower really stand out for me. Thanks for sharing these (and the album).
