Shutter Speed 1/500 sec.
18-70mm at 65mm
No Flash, Natural Lighting
I have no real connection to Amanda's gorgeous shot except for the spring theme. I don't know about anybody else but I am really glad to be able to head outside to take some photographs and not freeze to death. Yay for spring!!!
BTW I am having some issues with spacing, anybody else having any??? Not sure what the deal is because I'm doing the same things I've always done. But my paragraph spacing is WAY big.

My tie in is flowers. I grew up in San Diego where we don't get
seasons per se, we had summer and spring and maybe a touch of fall.
But the spring was so fast and you hardly noticed it since so many
plants were year round there. When I moved to Oregon I was astounded
at the spring they have up here! IN LOVE more like. You have time to
enjoy God's creations. This was the first year I have been able to
capture it with any success if I may claim that. I haven't edited
this photo. I really like how bright it is. If I do edit it I may
tone the exposure down just a tad so you can see more of the pink of
the flowers. Thanks for letting me share... again! :-)
Canon Rebel 300D
35-80mm lens at 80mm
I'll only add that it's nice knowing at least one other photog out there uses Canon. Amanda, this is becoming WAY too Nikon heavy now that Jay'me defected. See if you can drum up more Canonites for me! As always, thanks for posting!

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8
My tie-in is simply the texture. The strawberries scream knobbly bumpy texture. I promise I'll start shaking it up soon. I can feel the outdoor photography floating closer. Until then, bear with this macro loving, texture craving freak!

Moving on, aside from asking myself what is was that Jay'me photographed, I noticed immediately the centered framing. I had several ideas but when lunch came around, I was washing some blueberries and low and behold, the sun was putting on a show once more.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8
Shutter 1/6, 1/15, 1/40
Processed with Photomatix
I'm back in the saddle with HDR! WooHoo!!! Let me tell you, those with good computers (I count myself among them now), you can run Photomatix without fear of crashing or taking too long. What a joy! It's an entirely new experience for me!
I chose to do HDR because there really was a lack of contract and this is one thing HDR can improve. The tie-in is simply the centered "dot" if you will.
Okay, gotta take care of some kiddos. Have a great weekend everyone!
