    For a bit of a background on how I took this series take a peek at the post in my photography blog.

    I was never one to be first in line, either... This is a composite of some butterfly pics I posted. I also used this as the cover photo for a 2008 Calendar. I'm dubbing it "Orange On Black And White." It's a series of orange butterflies with backgrounds converted to black and white. Clockwise from the top left: Pearl Crescent, American Painted Lady, Monarch, and Gulf Fritillary. All were photographed with the E330 and all were taken with the 50-200/EX25 combo except for the Pearl Crescent which was taken with the 35/TC14.

    Bob, I like the treatment of the series. Clear, logical, and interesting. And while there's certainly no limit to the number included, I think you could probably leave out #4 and #6 without removing necessary information. About the only thing missing is what's in the capsules.

    Mike, great collection, and I really like the selective colour. It's a tough technique to use well. I also admire your using the 35mm macro + 1.4TC -- not an easy combination, but it sure does offer great magnification.

    Matthew, I was tossing up about #4 - but in the end I did include it simply because it is the halfway point. If I had given it more consideration while shooting I probably could have a few more images to choose from to make the sequence.

    I did set about trying to put together a series that needed nothing more than a title to convey what was going on and to that end I think I managed that fairly well.

    For the Record, the capsules contain turmeric, I could have done a similar series but used Cayenne Pepper which is a much darker, earthy colour. (Do your own research on taking both of these herbs as preventitave supplements - both very powerful when used together)

    Nice start, Jack and Dave!

    I am going to get mine posted later this week - hoping for some fresh snow as I want to see if I can track the resident bobcat and do a series of 'scapes from that outing.

    Default Around the Block

    Took out the E-1 and new-to-me 50-200 + EC 14 for the first time. Lots of room for improvement... Need to work on metering - all the photos were too dark, and I absolutely need a window camera mount!

    The series is a from a short drive around the square mile block I live in.

    How about to start just do an assignment perhaps for us amateurs to focus on using our cameras in other than auto mode.
