member since: 1/23/2005 Great capture Marsha!!! like your choice of effect here very well don !!!!

Somehow these two ended up on a separate thread.

Thanks everyone - Don, Kelly, Tom (if you lived close enough I would gladly share. They are pink and purple coneflowers - don't know if they will grow where you live or not. I have had them for several years and this is the first year that they have been as full, thick and great as they are now), Colette, Tammy, Carla, Stephanie, Janet, Cathy, Donna, Dado (I loved Ninja Koko), Paul, Roger, Claudia, SJ, Marcie (everything is blooming here, but so is the heat and humidity and it is only May - I dread July), Karen, Bonnie, Mata, Julie, Steve (I do that just for you, bud, so you will know what's coming), CJ, Kara, Laurence, Kate, Cindy, Goshka, Dan, Jennifer and Ermanno! #1344828

Wonderfully balanced image, Marsha! #1345426

Wendy Stevenson May 12, 2005

Wow that buzz really worked well on this wonderful image Marsha! I can't believe you have cone flowers already - gosh mine aren't up 'til late June:-( North of the 49th really sucks sometimes! #1345453

Terry R. Hatfield May 12, 2005

I Love The BuZZ Marsha Nicely Done:-) #1345562

Marsha S. Smith May 12, 2005

Thanks Melissa, Cathy (I have no idea, I just push and pull those little buttons - I think I should actually start some kind of journal or notebook so if I ever have to duplicate any of this stuff I will know what I did), Vicki (there are more kitties to come), Patty, Nobi, Gail and Wendy (my coneflowers never completely quit blooming all winter - it never got below about 30 degrees here and that was only short lived. In fact we had snow (for exactly 10 minutes one day and melted as fast as it landed for the most part) and I have an image of a coneflower with snow on it) This is my best year yet with them. I keep adding to the patch so they will have lots.) #1345572

Donna J. Taff May 12, 2005

Marsha S. Smith May 12, 2005

Thank you so much Donna and Kathryn! I think the buZZ is my favorite tool so far to have discovered and it was due to someone here at BP - Murry Grigsby or Carolyn Fletcher I think. #1345702

Darren K. Fisher level-classic May 12, 2005

Kathleen #1349736

Marsha S. Smith May 14, 2005

Thank you Jill, Laura, Stan and Kathleen - this is one of those things I have learned here at BP - Instead of shooting straight at or down onto this bunch of coneflowers I got down real low and shot just across the top of a boxwood hedge(the light green foreground) and kind of up at the coneflowers - really made a difference in how the image looked. I just keep learning from all you guys all the time. #1350186

Karma Wilson May 14, 2005

Taken yesterday afternoon in full sun of my bed of purple coneflowers that are in full bloom right now - camera on auto everything.
Really zapped with buzz simplifier.
I thought ya'll needed a break from kitties.
