    Of late I have been quiet; dealing with a lot of health and job stress.
    So my output here has been limited pretty much to Cats and Sunsets.
    Here are two that break me out of the doldrums
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/colette_noir/7082969463/" title="XZ-1 154 by colette_noir, on Flickr"> 7082969463_4b220abbdb_b.jpg "1024" height="1024" alt="XZ-1 154"></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/colette_noir/7082971035/" title="XZ-1 160 by colette_noir, on Flickr"> 7082971035_fedc906039_b.jpg "1024" height="1024" alt="XZ-1 160"></a>

    Both from my XZ-1 on Super Macro

    wow, the texture in the first one is rendered particularly beautifully! It really feels like I could reach out and let my fingers feel the petals... I'm not usually a big fan of flower shots but this has a sort of sensual quality to it:love:

  5. Stunning!!! The red rose is just gorgeous. Red flowers are so difficult to get right, you've done it beautifully :)

    Additionally, I hope your stresses have eased somewhat. Please take care.

    Thank you all.
    It felt good to get out and about in daylight!

    That Rose is stunning. The XZ-1 does a great job, but the photographer obviously knows how to use the tool.

    I hope your health issues and job stress are easing up for you. Neither is any fun.

  9. I was told recently that compacts don't do red very well......Those images make that statement nul and void, They're great!
