This is the first indoor and first outdoor shots with the new toy.  Talk about learning curve!!  I don’t know if I have the energy to figure all of this out again… it’s been a long time since I actually FOCUSED a photograph and it shows!!  And that outdoor shot below… what the heck is that focal point in the upper right hand corner that was not supposed to be a focal point?  … patience is not one of my strengths…

  1. Congrats on the new toy! Nice shots, too, love the subjects you chose.
    You meant to focus on the leaf in the upper right corner?? It looks like there was another leaf or petal blocking, and that’s the blurry part.
    If you focused the lens on the petals in the center, the leaf in the upper right was on the same focal pane as the petals and that’s why part of it is in focus. (Hope this made any kind of sense….it’s too early in the morning and I haven’t finished my first cup of coffee yet ;-) )

  2. I see a heart as a focal point…what do I know?! Beautiful photos!

  3. Tx Michaela (did i spell that right?). Yes, it makes sense that the upper right leaf under the blurry leaf would have been the same distance away as the hydrangea… i don’t like it though because my eye keeps wandering up there so i may have to crop it out! As far as the subjects go… i had eaten to much chocolate yesterday to eat those Sixlets so might as well take a pic of them! :) Nice to hear from ya!

  4. Tx Joy… see you soon
