Very nice shot! I like those photos with the dark in the background.

Show us a pic of the hibiscus flower after it opens, I'm curious to see what it looks like.

Both pictures are really nice. I love the dark leaves and then the eye pop with the bud..........and the open flower picture really shows every detail. Very nice. Now I have to start learning to use my camera so I can maybe some day take great pictures..........although this is a picture I took to capture the water drops on one of my daylilies....I think it turned out okay........

linda..your shot is great..I'm still learning as well..I'm a jack of all trades, master of nothing....at least with digital, you can take 300 pics at a time, for nothing more than your time and a little battery use....so click away!!!

What camera are you using?

epaoshaguy, I am not using a fancy camera, just a Canon Power Shot SX100 IS. I still don't understand all the settings and get confused trying to read the manual cause ya have to keep flippin' back and forth between different pages, maybe I am just gettin' too old! LOL!!
Hmmm, wonder if there is a dummy book to teach me how to use it? LOL
What camera do you use?

Hi linda...I have a Nikon D40x with an 18x55 lens and 55x200 zoom lens. The 200 is a fairly slow lens, so I have to bump the iso setting in lower light, resulting in a grainer picture...at any rate its a far better camera than I'm able to utilize....but I'm still learning. I have no doubt that a course on basic photography, use of light and such would make a huge difference...until then, I'll just keep shooting and playing around....
