It's really uncanny how easily I can pick out your photos from a lineup (gallery). =)

I believe the second half of one's life is meant to be better than the first half.The first half is finding out how you do it. And the second half is enjoying it....

Your photo is really a masterpice. What a focus on details. So refreshing at the beginning of the day.

I wonder how do you add the background not to loose the highest pixel width and height?

Agree with Caedes' comment. You have a style that's easy to spot.

Hehe, I too agree with caedes...I always know when an image is yours! I can usually spot many others' works as well :]

I like this one a lot...the colours are very pretty and I think the focusing looks really effective, too: the way the background and everything is blurred except for the one flower.
More high marks from me! This is so beautiful ^_^

Michael, I love the camera also. The image is superb as always! I have been doing some investigating and I am cosidering a new camera. Perhaps you have some suggestions? I really do not have the bucks to overspend, but I am wondering what is most important? how many pixels or the zoom factors? Digital cameras are a little tricky, perhaps I should consider a great manual camera?

I'm wondering why you went with such a soft focus when the camera you are using can almost count the grains of pollen. Lovey delicate pink and yellow.

Awesome shot. Now a couple of questions for the master:
1) This is the first shot i noticed of yours that you said you used the rebel. Knowing that you were the one i always thought of when i thought film, i wonder how you like it and how you find it compares.

2) what do you do to get the soft focus. It looks like there is more to it then just an apature adjustment for depth of field. Do you have some sort of something infront of the lens?
