I like DMS's version, and agree the original was "greenish." The young lady is beautiful with the nicest, and kindest smile. What function do the green hat ladies to the right have, and the two who are hatless?

Nice comment. I do not control the sun's shadow, and do not know why the background looks dark although that is the way I would to plan it, if I could. I suspect you are right about the texture because the coloration and bloom appears a bit like porcelain. I like the upright bud in the foreground. I could not have planned this shot because I am not that good.

To my older naked eye, the blooms do not appear porcelain-like on this rose bush. That said I have had other blooming roses that appear closer to porcelain-like than this one.

That is an interesting analysis. Dad bought 2 ME Supers in 1983 - the other was my law school graduation gift. Dad bought better lenses for himself than the ones he gifted me.

The aperture on the manual lenses is set on the lens, and the shutter speed on the ME Super automatically displayed in the view finder on the ME Super on aperture priority mode. For the youngsters here, we called that automatic back then, but it was what we now call aperture priority.

With a flash attached to the ME Super, the shutter speed was not displayed in the view finder (as I recall), so even with analog flash there was something going on there that seems to have balanced out the lighting, and the shutter speed, for the given aperture set on the lens and the ISO on one's film, or else I would have been way off using a flash every time.

I used my analog flash a few times with my earlier DSLRs before I discarded it. It worked, but was outdated. TTL flashes are a needed accessory.

This actually is an interesting rose bush in my garden from the standpoint it was purchased as "Winchester Cathedral" a purely white rose with the bloom same form. However, it sported (mutated) on approximately one-half of the rose bush, reverting back to the original color which would have been sold as "Mary Rose" which is pink. So, I have a bush that is about 4' tall, 3.5' wide, half of which blooms pink, half of which blooms white.

If your question is the size of the bloom, it is about 3-4" wide, an average size bloom. With the M 50mm, I can get fairly close, and crop the photo, and it looks at least as nice, if not nicer, in the photo as it does in-person.

My folks reported same in Tucson - i.e. monsoon season. I asked how much rain? But they had no idea. I am guessing not much.

Thank you. This was taken with a lens my dad bought for his Pentax ME Super in 1983, so it was appropriate to take this photo on Father's Day using it. What I do not understand is how a fully manual lens from 1983 can produce a photo with a flash and the lighting be correct on a DSLR in 2022 with the camera set at fully manual settings.

I wish I knew the technology that permits this because there is no electronic feedback from the lens. I may have pushed the green button, (I don't recall) but still, how does the TTL know the aperture which I set manually on the lens, or any other setting, and how does it seem to know I have angled the flash a bit so it wasn't pointed directly at the rose bloom?

I have taken flash photos of roses at night before with the few old manual lenses I own, and they seem to come out right, but it is beyond my understanding. What is the explanation?

My two hobbies are gardening, particularly rose gardening, I also grow vegetables, and Pentax photography.

This was taken at about 11:00 p.m. tonight with a flash and a 39-year old lens. The rose is Johan Strauss. I have been growing this rose for over 20-years. It is a beautiful carnation pink, high centered floribunda. It is not very common.

21mm Photo Contest Developing Blueberries

Here in Iowa, seasonally in the grocery we see some from South America, some from Florida, and then we see them from Michigan. Commercially viable crops are available when several farmers in an area grow the same crop and there is processing and shipping available. Blueberries in general are one of the hardier fruits. We did stop at an orchard in Michigan several years ago that had blueberry products.

Michigan (for being a Midwestern state) has quite a few different fruit orchards including apple, peach, cherry, and blueberry. Many individual farms grow several different fruits. The area closest to Lake Michigan is the orchard area because late freezes that will damage flowering fruits, are less likely.

The only blueberry farm we stopped at was when we were traveling in Michigan. I don't really have a good idea where commercially viable blueberry farms are located. Maybe in Oregon, Florida, and Michigan?

I am curious what state in the USA the blueberry farm would have been in? I don't know of any "blueberry farms" here in Iowa. Just as I type that line I did an internet search and found a few U-Pick blueberry sites in Iowa.
