    Very nice series Stephen.
    Shows what the Fuji kit can achieve in the hands of a capable photographer.

    You sure had a beautiful day, Stephen! I envy those gardens as I awoke to 8F degrees this morning. Wonderful colors - and you handled the white balance inside really well.

    Thanks, BBW.

    Actually, the white balance was handled by Fuji's auto white balance....I really didn't adjust white balance at all. I don't know why Canikon can't provide auto white balance functionality like Fuji can, but I'm not complaining.

    Your photos could be in a magazine they turned out so nicely. Thanks for sharing, I'm so wishing for the warmer months.

    Thank, I had a good time there. I need to look into membership so I can participate in the photographer's only event.
