    This is my first post here in this forum. Thought I would wade in. Here are a few photos of some cactus that I took during a recent visit to the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle, WA. Enjoy and please provide comments and criticism. I am always looking for ways to improve my skills in taking photos and processing.

  2. Hi Robin, welcome and some nice shots of Cactii there. It would be nice if you could get even closer on some of them. But of course they will prick if you get too close :)  What lens were you using?

    In shot #4 it would be nice if you had the pink flowers as your focus point. You should try some real close ups if you have a macro lens.

    Thanks Mitch,
    I was using the 18 - 70 lens with this. They were taken (hand held) before I got the 105 VR lens. I was in an conservatory and they did not allow tripods or monopods (makes you a professional) so I had to do with what I had. I would definitely use the 105 if I took them again. I agree that the focus is soft on a couple of them and getting closer would improve them. Thanks for the comments.
