New camera ~ now a new computer. And new Photoshop! (CS5). As a result, I am not too sure about the colors here… nothing looks the way it did on my laptop monitor! Too warm? Too green? Too gold? aaaaargh!

Well, I I did catch the butterfly… the zoom is pretty cool! Slight cropping, nothing radical. Panasonic Lumix. Taken on my deck

    Cool, all new stuff. Nice shot; I like how the light illuminates the flowers but not over the butterfly.

  • Thanks! I will be experimenting for awhile, needless to say! I appreciate your comment!

    lol it looks fabulous Nadya, just great! :O)

  • Thanks, Vanessa! I am still adjusting to this new monitor… everything’s a bit washed out. Not only mine, everyone’s! So I’m pretty sure it’s just the monitor (hope so.) lol!

    Looks bright and sunny to me, Nadya – well done!

  • Thank you, Monnie! I’ve decided it’s this monitor. At least I hope so: everything’s a bit washed out. Now I’m checking all my work on both. Ugh! But maybe I’ll adjust. lol
