Can you tell me what f-stop/speed these were taken at? I'm still struggling with the manual settings on my DSLR. Thanks.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyHoover BooMarch 31, 2010 at 9:37 PMThanks Sheila! :) Azure, I don't recall the fstop. The shutter speed was 1/125 on EdB and B, 1/250 on BC & SDLM.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousMarch 31, 2010 at 10:06 PMYou've done a marvelous job on Barcelona. I always try to shoot the blooms on the shrub and the color is never right.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyHoover BooApril 1, 2010 at 9:37 AMI can't get accurate 'Barcelona' color on the plant either. LOL! Hence the white background. If you think 'Barcelona' is tough, Eugene is even more difficult.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplynelJune 4, 2010 at 12:43 PMHow's Eugene performing for you? I live in East County SD, about 15 miles inland, and I love the color. But I wasn't sure if it does well here.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyHoover BooJune 4, 2010 at 6:21 PMHi Nely! My Eugene does well if given TLC--good amounts of water and light, steady fertilizer. It is not a vigorous cultivar, so the better it is treated, the better it does. The fragrance is the best feature. You might also try 'The Prince'--the flower is even prettier than EdB, the fragrance is not quite as good, but still powerful and sweet.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more...
