    My passion flower of 2012, it did not do well this year, I replaced it with something else a few weeks back. I do miss it,  image

    i love that david, water is facinating isnt it, im wondering if there is a camera club near me, i shall investigate further its good to keep learning

    Pleased you liked the example, Ann. I think the milky effect of the water makes all the difference.

    You would need to use a tripod though, as any camera movement would blur the whole's the water's movement plus a low shutter speed that gives that result.

    In much the same way, you can have fun with windmills.

  • That's impressive, ZombieGardener....what camera settings did you use?

    I'm no expert, rather point and shoot, but some flowers just look gorgeous close up like these gazanias.




     And some look weird, like this ageratum.



    Dordogne and Norfolk
  • hi david, I used the camera on my phone for that pic, I just checked the properties on the photo. I thought it was a macro from my point and shoot. Are you in a camera club?

    I like to take photos most days. I know how to turn the macro on and off, but totally lost with ISO setting and shutter speeds.image

    lol Salino nice dog & piggy.

    Great shots lizzie nice colours.
