    Hi Paul,

    They are really great flowers and smell soooo nice.

    I was amazed the flower does not last very long.

    Yes, tough to shoot at the wrong time of day especially.

    Thank you !!!

    Couldn't agree with you more. I did rotate it some.

    I shot with one hand and holding the branch out of the harsh sun.

    Thank you for your ongoing help. Much appreciated.

    Have to try them again....sometime

    Very well done Gale. I can't believe that you shot these one-handed. I couldn't hold the cam still enough with both hands. 8)

    Which lens?
  5. Delicate colors with no blown highlights in the white. Well done Gale.
  6. WOW Gale, fantastic shots!! :D  :D  :D  :D

    Hi Frank,

    Thank You kindly....

    I really wanted that pic of this flower. Shot some pics the day before and blew them something terrible. So the next day I tried again and knew what was going to happen, so one hand on camera and one on the branch was the only way.

    I did not think I could pull that off even with VR.

    Hi there Dawgy :>))

    Thank you very much.

    OHHHH they smell sooo nice tooo. :>)
  10. You really controlled the whites pretty well in this shot. Shot one-handed - well, it's said that women have the steadier hands unless they behold the guy of their dreams :lol:
    I just saw you added a lens baby to your arsenal - fun toy, isn't it?

    Thank you very much,

    To tell the truth haven't had a chance to play with the Baby lens yet. Can't wait to take some time at the park and just sit and play and try to see what it does. I sure like the effect of them.

    Should be fun to play with.

    I am not sure which is harder, one handed or shooting white in sunlight and trying to hide the flower in the shade as much as possible. Took many of it till I got it.
