My "new camera resolution" is to try to shoot more in manual mode. I get too excited and afraid I'll miss a shot so I've spent most of my time as a Nikon owner in Auto. It has been scorching hot but I did venture outside early yesterday to try to get some more shots of my flowers. The sun was on the east side of the house, I was on the west. Between the slight breeze and my instability it was hard to keep focus being so close but I'm pretty happy with my results first time all in manual mode!
All were taken with Sigma 70-300mmm f/4-5.6, resized and/or cropped for upload (which has caused a little loss in clarity and crispness).
I spritzed the first leaf and the pink flower with water but it's not as clear as the original size.
