    Buds and Petals

    Have not had much opportunity for bird shoots on this away trip due to the really wet weather this year. In the 6 weeks here it has been really heavy rains at least 80% of the time. Distance and/or transportation to the better locations is another issue.

    While that sucks, there is loads of other stuff here to fill our cards.

    This time it was untended flowers/plants.

    Nothing compared to the outstanding work of others but liked what I found and gave them a try.

    As always, suggestions and comments are welcomed and appreciated.

    Thanks for looking.

    Looks like you had plenty of color around Bobo. I like #3 the best. #2 would be a close second but the color banding in the background is a little distracting. I also like the buds in #4 but am not so keen on the block of color in the lower corner. #5 is interesting and I like it a little more each view.

    Thanks Paul.

    No banding on the original - must be the picasa downsizing again.

    Not sure what you mean about 4. If you mean the violet petals I did try to reduce their size relative to the buds but then the buds did not balance up well.

    Interesting shots Bobo, artistic in nature. I like number 2 in its simplicity, I do not see the banding Paul mentioned when viewing on my laptop. Number 6 I would crop out the right side making the image the flowering red tree/bush. Good captures and images.

    Thanks Joe.

    Needs a bigger fix then taking out the right, there are halos around the tree area.
