  1. Beautiful! Can you tell me what f-stop/speed these were taken at? I'm still struggling with the manual settings on my DSLR. Thanks.

  2. Thanks Sheila! :)

    Azure, I don't recall the fstop. The shutter speed was 1/125 on EdB and B, 1/250 on BC & SDLM.

  3. You've done a marvelous job on Barcelona. I always try to shoot the blooms on the shrub and the color is never right.

  4. I 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.

  5. How'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.

  6. Hi 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.
