I just got back from a short noon day walk. I took my D2H and Nikor 17-55mm f2.8 lens because I wanted to see if I could make these two flowers look decent in the bright sunlight. One is a Datura (Night Shade) and the other is a climbing rose. I have a bonus shot as well. Interested in your thoughts. 1. Datura: 2. Climbing Rose, I notice that focus is a little soft on this one: 3. As a bonus shot I will share this image of my neighbors house which was just finished a short time ago. They are in the process of landscaping: Ten bedrooms, 7 baths, home theater, laundry room on each floor, sitting rooms on each floor, huge nursery and play room, dining room, living room, family room, three stories, plus a bonus room on the 4th floor. That is the missus coming out the front door.
