It's Not Snow! - It's something RED!
Posted By: J.Scott, 03-01-2009, 07:24 PM

Like others I've had it with winter and snow.

My wife bought a tiny red rose plant today. Someday, if the snow ever leaves, she'll plant it in the garden; but for now it resides on the table.

As I explained in other posts I have trouble (or my K10D has trouble) rendering bright red as it is and not a glowy, hot pink blob.

So here is a tiny red rose. I purposefully kept the aperture stopped down to try and tame the usual horrible tones.

My non-wintery contribution for the 1st of March from the land of ice and snow.

I like this one. Roses for me are difficult. I will be working on them this summer. JIM

Green always compliments well with Red. This makes a striking impact overall.

Thanks for the kind comments. It warms the cockles of my heart to see something so bright and colourful at this dreary time of year.
