Photographer's Choice this week...


Peony, originally uploaded by RSCDoug.

Ok, I know the rules state I should be running around with my camera and getting new pictures for each challenge...I did the best I could here because I got my camera the day before our LG was born. So that means that the only new pics I have are all of her, and I'm not keen on posting those...So you get a couple of the shots I've taken during her naps!

My father-in-law is a flower farmer, and his field of awesome flowers happens to back up to my yard so I grabbed this shot of an uncut Peony before the end of the season.




Through the Trees, originally uploaded by RSCDoug.

This second shot is of a Japanese Maple in my neighbors yard that leans over the driveway. I though it was cool the way the sun was going through the leaves so I tried to capture it the best I could. I think it turn out OK...What do you think?

I agree the lighting made those photos.
I know what you mean on the children photos. I did post some this week because I want some photo help but they will be pulled quickly.

Oooh! These are so pretty! The peony is gorgeous! I would love to plant some in my own yard, but I know the bees are quite fond of them and I am not so fond of bees. Love the way the light is coming through the leaves on that tree. I think you did a fabulous job!
