Softness

Practising my manual settings today, I can actually manage to change them without consulting the book which is a good job as I have mislaid it again!

I present the boring flower!

Three good things:
1. We have watched & really enjoyed The Worlds Fastest Indian.....what a man!
1. Still some Prosecco in the bottle for tonight!
3. Good old X Factor back last night.....as corny as ever!
Funny how our tastes differ - I love flower shots (you may have noticed!) We also have some leftover white wine for tonight - in fact it's leftover Moroccan fish stew as well which Neil made, so an easy dinner all round.

@quietpurplehaze I know Hazel & you do such beautiful flower shots, I just feel I have copped out when I do flowers! Comes from living in a field for years! Thank you anyway!

@farmreporter yes I think I do Wendy but to be honest unless I am doing something that needs fast or slow shutter speed I can't see the point! I am hopeless at the photo challenging thing! Thank you for your comments.

@happypat I love a full English....or a full Irish Fry is even better!

A lovely delicate image-- love it ! I am afraid I have not really mastered this technique yet -- its usually a happy mistake when mine turn out like this !! And all of you talking about all this wonderful food while I feel the miseries of putting on the pounds after eating too well while on holidays !!

I had to look back to see how the conversation about a soft flower shot turned to full English!!!!

Lovely soft focus shot. I wouldn't know where my manual book is, I just have to guess, or ask David. He usually knows about settings.

Glad you enjoyed the DVD! Some people have seen it 15 times! Its good trying to learn the settings and this flower has soft promise!

Very cool! I like the colour and edit too. Know what you mean about flower shots, I try to do as few as possible too ;-)
