The last post.... of 2011

 Playing with the 50mm lens and the tulip boquet.  Nancy brought a lovely boquet of tulips over Wednesday to our dinner party.  Lovely, thanks so much.  I think the dinner went well enough.
 More playing with the 50mm lens and the foot of my new teddy bear.  Loaded it to Megashot on JB
 This is something from 2006 shot in RAW on my old Canon Powershot A50.  Tweaked in Photoshop, RAW converter.  I kinda like how it turned out.  I tweaked it some more to get the background less dull and blurry.  Shall loaded to my megashot for the Deserts Community.
 This is a panorama from my new little Sony, downsized, of course... pretty much right out of the camera. 

I walked a couple of days ago, into the Park, with the intention of using my new little Sony, with the Carl Zeiss lens.  It seems to have pretty good color and sharpness.  I am learning how to set the functions on it, slowly.  Its a very fun new toy, and so light and easy to carry.
Our weather has been very mild.  We have had some rain and a bit of gusting wind, but that is to be expected this time of year.  The garden does not need much attention, now.  I should get out and add lime to the veggie garden and the grass.  Should put fertilizer spikes in for the fruit trees too.

The top two still lifes are really striking - beautiful color and composition.

thanks Benjamin. As you know, it helps to shoot in RAW.
