    Howdy all, haven't posted in a while - sometimes when life throws lemons at you, it cuts into play time. I recently went out to a small botanical garden but the flowers seemed to be confused due to the brief cool spurts breaking up the typical warm weather here in Tampa Florida and didn't know wether to bloom or fade away. I made the best of it and played with the 'dynamic duo' anyway.

    These were shot as raw, aperture priority, unsharp mask and resized.

    Thanks All

    Thanks All, it was fun. Unfortunately, the advertised 1700 feet of boardwalk was removed and being replaced so my friends and I were unable to fully explore the area. Also, there was an outdoor wedding taking place that day and we were getting alot of looks from the guests and photographer at our gear.

    Hopefully the flowers and lilly ponds will look better and cleaner on our next trip.

    Peace
    Mark
