Thnxs so much Leigh. I am finding I do much better with subjects that don't move.. I'll give the cloning a try..Leigh said:Wow! The first is my favorite! Great lines and you held the whites really well. And I just love the second w/the hosta in the background. The last is great because if the new perspective you took w/the flower laying towards the ground, but I find the blades of grass in the foreground a bit distracting...think you could clone them out and clean it up? It would sure be a keeper if you did! I love what you've been doing w/flowers and greenery these days, Eric! Keep up the good work.
