    This was taken in small park close to where I work in Atlanta, lets just say the more unfortunate among us will stop here and take rest in shade for awhile.
    Had a orange smog alert this day and was very hot and humid. Only thing left alone was color of Hibiscus in this shot. D70, 60mm f/2.8 D micro, 1/125 s F7.1.

    Hi Neil:

    Great shot and wonderful detail! My neighbor has these growing along her driveway and I've been meaning to ask her what they were.

    Thanks for sharing :smile:

    Nicely done Neil. I didn't realize that you were over in Atlanta. You need to come over and shoot with us some weekend. :smile:

    Lisa thanks glad you liked the shot. Messed up on picture but thought could save it being creative.
    Frank thanks would like to do a weekend sometime later on when I have caught up on expenses. Could always use some guidance and tips on using camera.

  5. I like that deep color in the center and the pastel color all around that.

    Thanks Gilles know did not capture flower at its peak, think it has a hard life with all the auto exhaust and smog in area.
