I think that lilacs have got to be one of my favorite flowers. They are beautiful here right now.

This is a flower I planted over the weekend. Can't remember the name of it, though.

I like this instant flowering plant ;-).

Very nice indeed. I believe matrix metering is used, it would be interesting to try center weight or spot metering, and see how the different exposure modes compared. With spot metering, you should get a darker backdrop which will isolate the flower a little more.

Jonathan

Thanks for the tip Jonathan. I'll give it a try. Over the weekend when I planted all my flowers we had 80 degree weather--very nice. Yesterday we had a big storm go through. I just looked out my window at 5 a.m. and there is a heavy frost. Hope my flowers survived!!!! That is life in Idaho.

Very nice on both, but the yellow one really stands out. You have depth of color w/o loss of detail. Great!
