P1030231 Xygocactus (Schlumbergera) Blossom

I loved the way the falling sun shows through the petals.
Processed from raw - hadn't noticed the Adobe Camera Raw defaults to a setting of 25 for sharpening - I hate halos! Have to redo this one!

Quite lovely, Isabel! I think you're putting the LX3 to better use than I am at the moment (just no free time). V.

Very nice - subtle enough colours, good composition and light!

I forgot to add that is a gorgeous shot Isabel!

That was a helpful hint CIS, I didn't know about that either. Isabel, I can't see any halos either.

Thanks CIS. I had forgotten about that because with my machine set for large fonts the text in the preferences is very hard to see - the letters are cut off. I had turned it in for previous versions of Photoshop.

Isabel, you can go into camera raw preference and at the top of General apply
sharpening to preview images only. I don't see any halos though, my monitor may
not be as bright?:o)
