May Play

Thank you all for making The Diva #1 in the Pops. Sometimes everything just works, and I am very happy you all liked it so much. And a big thank you to Doug Kessler who first mentioned the name 2 days before the real spot lights dimmed.

Just had a few minutes to play tonight. At the last ITC meeting the host, John Ryan, gave me a small hair light/soft box which I haven't had a chance to play with. And since I can't keep flower alive in my house this rose looked like a good subject. It was fun playing with different strengths of light.

Question?? Just paid my dues for another year, and noticed we now get 400MB of storage! How cool is that!!!

the light is lovely on this, Karen. I am a fan of the dead and dying flower motif but I think I've mentioned that before. You do such good things with them.

Wonderful detail and lighting.

Dunno how you do it sometimes, Karen ~ this is gorgeous; I love the fact that there is a bud in the b/g. Sweeeet Shot!

The withered rose is such a wonderfully original subject. And the lighting works really well on the leaves also

So well done. Hair light/soft box. I am really slipping into ignorance.

Great lighting, and crisp. Can't get enough attatchments, imho. You'll make good use of it.
400mb... I've got to get out and shoot! Pretty cool, yes.
