    My christmas cactus is in bloom! :D So I thought that I'd try to get some pics!?!?

    I had to put something on the window ledge as the white and label on the window where very distracting, but the shimmer of the polor fleese is as well :x

    This one I like becuase it looked like a caged bird against the screen!

    The caged bird concept is very cool. The detail of the second picture I really like, but I do find the white to the left quite distracting..

    Great start! How long will the flower be with you? The possibillities are limitless. Maybe bring it near a south facing window, in the sunlight.

    That's about typical. I think it is only the most beautiful flowers that pull that kind of behavior. In any case, consider the first shot lede.

    :( My digital camera sucks! :( Can't really do much about the DOF in a Macro! I'll try a greater resolution and backing out bringing it to the side of the frame! I should just pull out my SLR and see what I can do, Need to finish up the roll anyway! :D

    Thanks for the comments all! I appreciate it! :D

    I will have to keep that in mind when friends ask what not to get. I have a finepix 4900 and it ranges from f/2.8 to f/11 with full manual ability. Ok camera but I would still love to have the Canon EOS-1DS

    no worries I don't think that they make them anymore.....
    actually it's not a bad camera, but it has no bell and no whistles!
    1.3 megapixils

    Ya I'v been carring around a ad for that rebel digital slr they are puching this year, but no way I'm going to happen on $1600.00 that I can spend on a camera!

    I'm just going to have to play with the old manual and that's it Cannon tx that's older then me camera! :?
