    I really like the graduated colour of the petals here, they really stand out against the black

    Gorgeous! What kind of a camera did you use for this shot?

    Hi Sandra. I used a Panasonic DMC-FZ4. It served me well for many years but I have since given it to my husband and gotten a FujiFilm Finepix F550EXR. It is easier to fit into my pocket and gives me more pixels to work with! What kind of camera do you favour?

    Stunning, delicate and oh so gorgeous! You should consider jining the “Stop and Smell the Roses” group for this one. :)

  • Great tip, Ann! I didn’t know about THAT group! I will follow-up.
