I trespassed behind the chainlink fence they put up around the old HOJO motel next to my office so I could get up close to the Coneflowers (Echinacea). I shot this with the Olympus E500, using the 50mm macro, set on manual focus and aperture priority, at f20, The ISO went to 800 at 1/125th shutter, and I used manual white balance to skew the colors this way. (on tripod). There was a fair amount of noise so I ran it through Noiseware, hence the need to enter the exif here. (See John.. I remembered this time) Mnor crop, and gamma knockdown only other adjustments.
