  1. very nice detail. what camera/lens did you use
  2. D70 with the kit lens. I love that little lens!! :D  :D  :D 
  3. I can see why.
  4. Dawg,

    Think you might have blown out the green channel there. :lol:

    Great composition. Did you catch the dew on the tomato or use a spray bottle? I can never get it to look just right using the spray bottle technique.
  5. Dawg, I've got the bread buttered, the mayonaisse slathered, the salt & pepper ready.... now just waiting on that tomato!
    Nice capture of nature. Just a hint: get yourself some ladybugs, I think that might be an aphid on the stem. Ladybugs just LOVE aphids for lunch and they won't harm the rest of your garden. You can buy a cloth bag of them at garden centres.
    Mark, try holding the spray bottle away and above what you want to dowse. Replicate soft mist falling, but then again, I'm a believer in just capturing Mother Nature as she presents the stuff to us - no mist bottles, etc.
  6. LOL!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Very Nice Dawg,

    Looks like natural the water.

    A trick to that spray mist thing is not to use it.

    Bowl of water dripped on.

    I think Dawgs is natural.

    Great work there Bryan.

    PS: How you doing. How is the job hunting progressing. Keep us up-todate on your experiences. Bring your camera and do a photo journalistic history of it.

    You may end up with a PJ job :>))))
  8. Good exposure. Great catch of the dew. It makes the tomato very... miam miam (even if the green channel is blown out :)  ).
    Kit lens eh!... You just confirm that it's not the gear making a picture, it's the person behind the camera.

    If patrick has to do the weeding then she better hide the roundup.

    Tee hee hee...I don't mind doing the weeding. I have a method that works for me. I lay black plastic down once the seeds have sprouted. My soaker hoses are underneath so when I water it reduces the amount of evaporated water. But the great thing is that it cuts down on weeds. I still have to pull a few here and there, but not like i would if i didn't have the plastic down. Another upside is that I don't have to walk through mud to pick the garden if it's been recently watered or rained!

    NO, I guess I don't....but I also have lots of family and friends who would be disappointed if I didn't share the bounty so I have to plant enough to share!

    Wow - that looks great Bryan! Very pretty composition, and the background is interesting. The color and the water drops make for a great atmosphere with this photo - Well done!
