I was supposed to enter this photo in a photo contest again but I didn't joined for some hesitations.

A bit blurry. How I wish I learn playing this instrument soon.

In the following photos, I tried to emphasize the main subject by enhancing their color and making the others grayscale. I used Photoscape in editing the said photos. Editing this photos takes a lot of patience.

Photography Tip: Don't Shoot Flowers Down

Here's another tip and again on flower.

While walking around and found some flowers that really looks great, you can't help yourself but take a photo of it. However, just like on my title, don't shoot flowers down. Instead, you must be the one to go down on their level. Find a good angle that your rarely see and you will get a nicer image.

Here's an example using Euphorbia plant.

Red-Speckled Yellow Flower

Four O'Clock Flower (Mirabilis jalapa)
I was fascinated by this yellow flower. Another variety of one I posted in my Flower Power Collection. At far, you can only see this as plain yellow but with a closer look, you can see the petals with red dots.

I think using DSLR with macro lens will give more detailed image of these insects.

Photography Tip: When to Shoot Flowers 2

Here's another simple tip I get from Scott Kelby on when to shoot flowers. You will get a better shot of flowers early morning or late afternoon. It is recommended to shoot them right at the first hour after sunrise or and hour after sunset. Here is an example of a Bougainvillea took at around 5:45-6:00pm.
