I’ve been taking advantage of my wife’s gardening skills, again.

A single fuchsia flower hangs over the edge of its container.

Dryden, ON.
Olympus E-510; 40-150 mm lens;
300 mm equivalent focal length
ISO 400; f:8; 1/15 sec.
Exposure comp.: +0.7

Image stabilization can work wonders. This was taken handheld, elbows braced.

    Beautiful flower shot Stan! Image stabilization ease taking picture handheld very much.

  • Thanks a lot, Veikko !
    The only real downside to IS is that I’m getting lazier and lazier. I find I’m carrying my tripod around a lot but using it less and less. Bad habit that i HAVE to change. :)

    Stan! That is a stunning photo! It’s so sharp it looks 3 dimensional. Or is it the depth doing that? Or the lighting? Fabulous shot!

  • Thank you kindly, for both C ! :)
    It’s probably a combination of both. The flowe was in shade, the background in sun. The background was also far enough away to be a complete blur, using the telephoto end of my zoom.
