Thanks - it was my 40th birthday present!!! Shhhhh

OK... well here is one of the close up images I took of a tulip.
Most of this image was auto accept I chose to centre weight and chose a different lighting - cloudy.

Here's another flower cropped. I chose white balance and then took centre weight off.

Wow, they turned out fantastic!! I think I found my next camera. Of course by the time I can afford to get it, it will be obsolete.
Looks like you're going to have a great time with your new toy. Boy I sure envy you.

Those are fantastic! I especially like the first one. I have no hope of ever getting colors like that out of my digital camera.

Just so you get an idea of what the original file looked like...
Before cropping it was 1920 X 2560 pixels, 72 dpi. Had I chosen to save it as a tif with no compression it would be huge. I was just reviewing my notes and discovered the one with all the white flowers that I posted, did not have white balance. I'll post the one with white balance so you can compare.

The colors have so far impressed me. Thank heavens for a sunny day!

Hi Lisa,

Your candytuft flowers (the white ones) came out beautifully. I love these plants. In time they become very large and bloom from spring to fall. I have 15 of them in my gardens. I am really impressed by the close up of the tulip. Did you use the original lens that came with the camera or do you have additional close-up lenses?

I also like candytufts. If I zoomed out, you could see the entire ledge of the garden covered with them. I used the original lens. Not bad huh!

Lisa,

I plan on getting my Nikon 5000 in a couple of months and it's good to know that the original lens takes such good close ups.

The digital camera I have now is a Kodak 260, 1.3 MP that I bought about 4 years ago. It takes a good 4x6 but anything larger looses a lot a detail.
