Not to everyone's taste, I know, but I have taken this mimosa with soft focus setting.

My thanks to all who commented on CRM Rose: we are baby and doggy sitting round the clock today so will try and catch up tomorrow.

I've been wondering how to do 'soft focus' - don't know if I've got a setting or how you go about it.
I'm not always sure of the effect but see how effective it can be in certain circumstances.
The mimosa is gorgeous against the blue sky Ronnie.

Mother Nature's backdrop is just right for this shot, Ronnie.
Beautifully contrasting colours.
An excellent example of sharp and soft; there's an almost 3D feel to this image.
That Sony's a versatile camera.

Well I like this one very much Ronnie, it's good to see you stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something a little different. Your experimentation has paid off handsomely
