    Some Flower Pictures

    Here are a few flowers that I took pictures of. Go easy, I'm still learning the camera .

    U. sandersonii


    D. indica 'Green Form'


    P. moctezumae


    And for fun, U. humboldtii


    Thanks for looking,
    Crystal
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    the camera did a pretty good job, how was the autofocus? did you get lost in the background when you were focusing some of those shots?

    Thanks guys! That indeed does seem to be a D. capensis Pet. No idea where it came from, must have come along in the moss.

    Chris, I didn't use a tripod or anything, just held the camera. I probably could have done better. The marco lens and the appropriate setting on the camera do a pretty good job with the autofocus. There's no minimum distance that it has to be from the object. I do have options for manual focus, but didn't use them because I was just holding the camera. Not completely sure what you mean by lost in the background, but a few were out of focus. That would have been fixed if I wasn't being lazy . If I get a chance I'll try again this weekend (and take the time to use the tripod). Flowers are tricky.

    flowers are very tricky, sometimes the camera will lose the ability to pick out that tiny flower scape as the object it needs to focus on, and the hand wobble your going to produce no matter who you are is enoough to sometimes throw off the autofocus when you have a busy background

    if you feel really inspired next time when you take flower photo's a tip some will do is take a piece of black paper or construction paper and place it behind the flowers so the camera will have an easier time focusing... if focus is a problem that is :P

    Nice job on the cultivation and the photography. That disclaimer sounds awfully familiar, LOL!
