    Just another flower shot for you...

    ... but for us, it's a small triumph on the terrace. We've always had white-and-yellow frangipanis, but Leela has always wanted the less-common pink one.

    So she bought what the nurseyman promised was a pink variety, but for two years we've had no way of knowing. It remained small, scraggly, anemic... and considered dying.

    But this year saw a new vibrancy and a couple of weeks ago we saw the first tiny maybe-I'll-become-a-flower blooms. Then, two days ago, our first pink flower... and today three.

    Nice colours, nice shots. Crystal clear is the term that comes to my mind

    Don,

    Lovely, like always.
    It reminds me of starfish, color and shape.
    Definitely DP2 in competent hands can pull a lot of color and details.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers

    Richard

    Thank you all for such nice comments. I've come to two realizations with the DP2:

    1. Don't judge anything by the LCD. One of the surprises with the DP2 is how nice most images look once you A) get them on the computer monitor, and B) wait for the custom settings in SPP to do their magic.

    2. Unlike with other cameras, I almost hate to post small sizes of DP2 images because the full-size images look so much better. This is the first digital camera I've owned that has made me think I should be doing more printing.

    Thanks again... your messages are a nice way to start my day.

    Don,

    A beautiful flower shot. Is this composed with the lcd or the ovf? Thinking about my parallax question to you.

    Thanks!
