Welcome aboard Greg!
Experimenting is everyone's nickname in the cafe... I guess we were all genetic scientists in a "previous life" :-D
It's through experimentation that we have reached to a certain level of photo-skills.
I'm sure you'll find the cafe full of "area 51s" and with a great public library, too ;-)
Enjoy and share!

Greg, welcome to the Cafe!! I was just out shooting with a friend that was showing me the technique that you used here, and I am planning on trying it myself this weekend. It worked well for in this image.

BTW, we don't mind if you post images a little larger. Makes it easier for us to see the great pics. I usually post at 800 x 600 or larger.

I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

Re: re: thanks

Greg,

Welcome to the Cafe. I think your second image is dreamy. You really nailed the color too! I have a lot of difficulty with reds and yellows in nature. Great job. 8)

I like very much the second shot, I guess you made the focus on the third flower from the top. The colors are very good.

Right, Focus is on the 3rd flower down. DOF at f/5.6 is shallow and I think gives the photo a soft feel. I have others with more and less DOF, ( I kept changing f/stops) but I liked this one because of the soft texture.
