    I went to a local rose garden this morning, the light was so nice…

    The rose garden looked better this morning than I have seen it all summer, very strange. Maybe my eyes were just more 'open' today! :doh: :tongue:

    Just wanted to share this one as well, even though it was taken with a DSLR! I enjoy finding abstracts like this in the petals of flowers...

    Wow, Neil - first of all that EX1 macro is phenomenal! I feel as though I am right in there - the colors and textures look absolutely perfect.

    As for your DSLR abstract - ye shall not be banned, but you've made me swoon with the intensity of those waves of beauty!

    Thanks BB - I find using P&S cameras a little 'challenging' for close-up/macro work as the working distance is so small (the increased DOF is nice though). I actually am just waiting for a +5 achromat lens to come in the mail, using the lens at full tele with the +5 should make things much easier.

    Streetshooter - You know you want it, it is a fun little shooter with surprisingly good IQ. :wink:
