    Well, I would say....very nice!!

    Ready for Merritt?
  5. Really nice image Kevin, the interior glows.
  6. Thanks for your kind words, Alain. My goal for the day was to start "using" the machine rather than just the defaults. So I messed around with Matrix, Center-weighted, and Spot along with EV. These white flowers gave me quite the opportunity to learn the camera. Wish I could do as well with the white herons. Still blowing them out too often.
  7. Boy, and how! :lol: I think I may scoot over there on Saturday just to scope out the area since I've never been there. Might give me an advantage and to keep from falling behind you masters too far. I might be suffering from performance anxiety.... :roll:
  8. Thanks, Gordon! You should have seen that place when I came out of the woods onto the boardwalk. The whole pond is covered with these lillies. I was there a few weeks ago and there were only a couple. I could've filled a whole card with nothing but these. The light was harsh as it was 12:30pm but I tried my best to think about the settings and shoot accordingly. Some were blown out so not sure what I did on them. Just gotta keep practicing. :)

  10. Thanks, Leigh. These lilies are one of my faves. There are literally thousands of them in this pond. Hope to make it back there soon.

    Hi Kevin,

    An special and unique composition, Very Nicely Done !


  12. Nice shot!! :D  :D 
  13. Thanks for the compliment, guys. Robert, I love your avatar!
  14. Very nice! I love the composition... the contrast between the bright white flower and the dark water just to the right. It has a very nice feel... It almost reminds me of the picture used in the opening screen in Quark... if you're familiar with that program.
  15. Thanks, Nathan! I got quite a few really good shots there that day. I still have to finish going through them to decide which I'd like enlarged.

    Are you going to join the Merritt Island shoot?
