I live in Ontario, Canada and love making photographs. I continue learning how to use my DSLR. With almost 15 000 photos on this camera, I still have to have lots to learn.

I enjoy looking at photos on PB and learning from others on the site.

With each photograph I make, I learn and become one step closer to becoming a photographer as I learn about the camera, composition and my own eye for what pleases me in a photo.

I've completed a Project 365. My policy for the 365 was to change nothing about the photos except the lighting (levels, brightness, contrast, shadows and highlights). Everything else was as it was seen by the camera.

Since the 365, I made a photo each day, to 1000 days but was a bit more free about cropping and editing, though I tried to keep it minimal. I am now posting less often.

Now, I make photographs for the joy of making photographs with no rules and no commitments.

My kit includes:
Camera: Olympus E-3, Lenses: ZD 12-60mm, ZD 70-300mm super zoom-telephoto, Flash: FL-50R (off camera capable) Tripod: Manfrotto 055XPROB, Olympus 50mm f2.0 Macro 1:2 lens
Apple-Macintosh MacBook Pro

The thickness of the petals is interesting. Are they in a hot area?
No around Sydney and Newcastle they are a summer flower though

Beautiful portrait Nynke.
People who want to hurt you through the internet can only do that if you think that the particular attitude and comments are worthwhile to you. Don't let them hurt but grow strong from them.
Thank you so much for your kind words and support Dave! Really meant a lot to me! Wish you a beautiful day :)
