dramatic geranium

Quick turnaround: I created this image tonight after work -- a new geranium plant recently added to my balcony collection. (South Coast Botanic Garden had a geranium show and sale last weekend, and I couldn't resist this lovely plant, variety "Rembrandt.") (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/5, 1/25 sec., ISO 400 in shade, handheld) I know some of you will look at that 1/25 shutter speed with a 50mm lens and make nice comments about steady hands. Really, a lot of credit goes to Olympus for building great image stabilization into their camera bodies.

 

Large view on black -- worth a look!
