Since buying a digital camera, I've been having a blast taking pictures and sharing them by emailing them and mailing CDs. I've checked into the photo sites, such as "Ofoto" but I thought I'd like to try this approach, so here are a few of the good, the bad, and the ugly among my "masterpieces."

Photo Friday: Best of 2005 Posted by Picasa

I took SO MANY photos in 2005, it was a challenge to choose one, and I'm not sure why this would be one of the best. I just like it I guess, and I did spend a lot of time getting it as close to right as I could get it. It was taken at Frederick Meijer Gardens in May, very near the end of the tulip season. I remember messing with my camera settings and with the composition to find the right combination for drawing attention to the front flower while leaving a background that hinted at the presence of other flowers without allowing so much attention be drawn to those other flowers that the viewer loses the feeling that the front flower is the focal point. I think, had I used the clone stamp tool and removed the snippet of flower at the bottom of the photo, it might have been a bit better, but it's still an okay photo for me.
