A Lily Explosion, 161/365


As promised, I'm going to overload your vision with oriental lilies this week!  I wish you could smell these flowers!  I would love to have played in photoshop with these and I eventually will.  But I know nothing about it yet, but I am taking a texture class from Kim Klassen this month!  These were taken with natural window light, a tripod and a 2 second timer delay - and shamefully - still set on automatic - flower macro setting.  I haven't had time to learn manual setting yet...  But I think these are still enjoyable.

Rosie - I have enjoyed your blog almost from the beginning of my blogging! ;)

Bonnie - I appreciate your praise! Really. I have quite a bit more to post (and at least 100 in my archives to use with textures, etc!)

Carol - :) I was inspired!

LauraX - I am really excited to swing by tomorrow (I already did today :) Thank you!

Patty Ann - :) Thank you.

Brian - 2 second delayed timer, tripod and light from the window made it all possible. Thanks! I have more for tomorrow.

They're beautiful, I wish I could smell them. I don't know the manual settings either. I need to take a class.

Ruth - that surprised me as I would have wagered a bet that many of your photos were not manual. Quite often, they have a professional look to them. Good thing I'm not a gambler!
