I've been busy at work and had the flu for a better part of the week and it just seems like eons that I have done anything on the forum.My wife and I always fight over the computer so she bought me an HP G72 laptop for my own.I bought her the flowers.I think that I got the best of the deal.Fooling around with the new unit has taken up some of my spare time but this self taught process is getting easier to handle for an old geezer.---charliezap

I guess I did ok guys.The laptop is very nice with its 17.3 " screen and has much more "horespower" than the wife's computer.To get the go ahead for a K5 is going to cost me more than flowers.--charliezap

Let's see, you got a new laptop and she got a bunch of flowers that you used to take a photograph of so you could post it online and get all kinds of compliments on how well the photo turned out and what a nice guy you are for buying them in the first place? Sounds fair to me.

Hi Tess-Actually we did need a 2nd computer.We are going to Englewood Fl for 2 weeks and we would miss being in touch with friends and family.

Sounds like you summed it up very nice.I couldn't have articulated it better.

Speaking of time Jer.The clock in the background is 30" in diameter and 3 ft from the table and I was 10 ft away from the flowers when I took the shot.As for the trade it was a win-win for both of us.--capn zap

Remind me never to get into a bartering session with charliezapp. He obviously has superior skills. Interesting use of filter too.

What can I say.Sometimes a person does get lucky.As for the filter effect it's just one of the features on the k20d.--charliezap
