The Rose Garden?

For our SLR 2 field trip we went to a rose garden, but sadly the roses we not in bloom, but there were beautiful water fountains and a lot of other flowers that were ready to be shot by eager students.

Dandilions are one of the most annoying flowers out there, but so very sweet at the same time.

This fountain was perfect to practice long and short shutter speed.

Hans has a thing for Lilacs. I'm not sure if it's the look or the nostalgic smell, but I was thinking of him when I shot this.

I am excited to report that this photo didn't need any photoshopping.

This too is real thing.

One of our assignments was to work on using foreground

Being born in the desert has deprived me of plants that I'm sure are common place in most other parts of the world. These little beauties are called bleeding hearts.

There was a sculpture garden and this statue had a bunch of these oragami birds stuffed in it.

Beautiful pictures. I too get excited when I don't have to photoshop my photos. I think it's almost like cheating when you do alter a photo. What do you think?

What a beautiful talent you are developing. Keep posting your photos. I'd love to buy one someday and have it blown up for my house. I think it is all the more special when you know the artist.

I actually like the dandelion the best. Kind of crazy.
