Full Bloom
Lens: 18-55mm kit Camera: K-X Photo Location: Toronto ISO: 200 Aperture: F3.5

The start of something great, the budding relationship with my K-x.
I did crop and increase the exposure (very slighlty) in Iphoto, then balance the temp for the increase.

Please share your collective wisdom with me, I'm here to learn from the best.

This would have been very good if that pole weren't in the background. I really like the flower's soft colors and the way it emerges from the edge of the frame.

I really like the perspective of this one but I'd have to agree that the pole is a distraction. But this shows you have a good eye; just have to work on the details. Nice shot!
