This is my wife's birthday bouquet of flowers (her.....th. birthday today, 15th. April), shot indoors using available daylight only, and with my usual backdrop.
Viewing LARGE is worthwhile if you should have time!

Details: ISO 200, 0.4 sec. at f/36.0, centre weighted average, and Exp. Bias of -1.33.

Many thanks to all who offered comments on my last upload "Park and Garden 2", all of which are greatly appreciated.

Ronnie.

Camera:Nikon D700 Check out Nikon Nation!
Lens:Nikon 24-120mm. at 70mm.
