Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

. Thank you, Valery. :) Suri, that's a lovely detail of a.... hmm, a lily, I believe. Not sure that tulips have a trumpet-like center as in your photo. :) Lovely, though. JBTaylor, beautiful roses! I like narrow shots and lots of Shallow DoF myself, but all shots are welcome, of course. Sig, that's ...

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

Dizzying, trying to find you in some of the shots with repeats and multiple reflections, Sig ! :D Fine photo puzzles…
:D You even stand like a balet dancer when shooting standing… Good posture and trained feet positions ! :D (Kidding)

Well done!

Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

I'll start the thread with an Asian Lily in bloom taken with the veteran A100 and Tamron 90mm. This bud already blossomed last weeken...

Thank you. Unfortunately we could not look through the telescope as there were classes being held.
Sometime in the future, we will try.

I hope you get to enjoy the telescopic scenery as well, Sury. :)
Good luck!

Re: Lick Observatory, Mt. Hamilton, San Jose, CA

Nicely photographed, Sury. The location of the observatory, the mist of city lights and the celestial body, known to us as our Sun, setting over the landscape is wonderful. A wonderful spot to remember that we are life-bound space creatures living on our own very unique celestial body, Earth. Were y...

Re: High Waters (not talking about pants)

Hi, Sig.

The photos and the story-telling is most interesting. If it weren't for the dramatic reality of the flood and its probable aftermath, maybe resulting in mud accumulation, mold and traces of damage to concrete and metal surfaces, each photo is intriguing by itself.

Re: Close Up with Minolta MD 100F4 Bellows

Hi, Sury. :)

Good of you to try a rather old technology on a new model camera. The details on the second and third shots are really crisp and all this sharpness without a tripod is impressive.

Re: #images=180o/angle -1

:D I certainly hope that you won't use this kind of photography in substitution for uploading multiple beautiful photo frames, Sury.
Good shot and technological gimmick, though. :)

Re: Bees in the backyard

Last two are also my favourites, Sury. So nicely captured.
I had a hard time spotting the bees in the others due to shadows.

Re: A99-2

A very enjoyable photo stream at Flickr, ValeryD.
I especially liked the hands-on exploration of the Stingrays and the splendour of the Peacocks.
