{Gerbera Love}

In celebration of Mother's Day I received some beautiful flowers.  I love gerbera daisies.  I took a few minutes yesterday with my 60mm macro lens and had some fun.  I am pretty happy with these photos although they are a little grainier than I would have liked.  My ISO was 400 and 800 since it was a little cloudy outside.  These were taken inside, by a window.

There is minimal processing on these.  A few RAW exposure tweaks and a little color boost on a pink one.  The black background was from the back of my laptop.   The white is a poster board.

My garden is finally coming to life!  Things are growing everywhere.  I might just have the last tulips to bloom here in Minneapolis but when they do, I'll post photos!

Linking with Sweet Shot Tuesday over HERE!!

Ah, I shared a couple of shots of my gerbera daisy with Darcy today, too. I don't have a macro lens. It's on my list, though! Beautiful detail.
