Hello TPF. I am new around these parts of the net and I hope my time here will be enjoyable. As a first, I would like to show you some of my best shots from yesterday's biking and photograph session. I've attempted flower close ups for a while now and these are some of my bet yet. They were shot with my Sony DSC-R1 on macro mode with aperture priority selected. 1. I like the composition on this one: 2. Vivid colors but something bothers me about it: 3. From here on I'll let the pictures talk for themselves. 4. I consider this to be my best of the day: 5. 6. 7. Please understand that these were not edited yet so they are in their original state (I prefer to have as much of the original shot in a final picture as possible without cropping or color editing). Please comment and criticize as much as you like. Yours, Alex .
