Flowers, Leaves & Bugs  

, originally uploaded by plingthepenguin.

New 8Gb card for the Lumix arrived yesterday, so I took the camera out to the garden for a bit & took a bunch of pictures of things I found. I'm rather pleased with how some of these turned out, but I'm curious about which ones work for other people :) I wonder if anyone who feels inclined could indulge me & tell me which one they liked best - there's about 30, starting here and running to here. (Note there's a couple of close ups of spiders, for those who are bothered by such things!)

This sunflower one is my favourite although I think the focus is very slightly off. Other contenders (for me) were this one (which had the most post-processing), this one (which was one of J's favourites), this one (although the seed is possibly a little indistinct against the background) and this one.

First of all, the music choice is very good.

Also, your photos are nice. You seem to have an eye for composition which is probably the most difficult bit to learn to do well.

I left my comments on flickr but overall I really like the photos. I did zip past the spider ones as even a brief glimpse makes me feel like leggy things are crawling all over me!

Thanks for looking & commenting! :) Much appreciated - I've kinda got to the point where I can produce a few photos from each set that I really like even after the initial ooh-I-made-this rush has passed, but it's hard to tell if that's just me. So thanks for the nice things you said, too! :)

I had meant to do this earlier, but got side-tracked. I have noticed that your eye for photos have been improving very nicely though (can't remember if I've mentioned, but I definitely know that I've seen some and remarked with 'Ooh, that looks cool' or 'Ooh, that's a really nice one'.

I'll leave some comments on Flickr for this set though.
