  • Flowering from the riparium

    Today is just full of surprises . After a month of owning it, my asclepias curassivica started forming flower buds, and that was a month ago. Now it finally began to open up. I now have a bit of spring in my room coming from what someone else dubbed as the sumparium lol. All of them aren't open completely yet, but I am happy with this .

        Thank you Lieutenant Colonel CJ and Dena . I still surprised at the growth that these have. I've been toying with the settings on my camera, so thanks for the feedback on that too .

          Great shot!! Flowers are very cute.

          Tips on your camera, try to focus manually because the focus seems a bit off. Also mess with the white balance to get a better color on the flowers.

              Thanks, they are neat looking, never thought I would be excited about something flowering though lol.

              I will try out the tips, thanks. I still have the white balance on auto, so I will try dialing that in some more. I'm not sure why it is blurry though, they are crisp on the SD card. Would the downsizing of the picture effect anything?

              Oh definitely, in the past I always ended up killing plants lol, so some success is nice. Thanks!

                I think I had a rotala flower now to long ago. Kinda cool looking .

                Hm... could be. I upload everything to photobucket without editing it in the least so if my pictures are a little blurry it is cause I didn't focus properly.

                  Nice, rotalas have some really interesting little flowers too.

                  It is probably my fault, I probably just need to blame something else lol. Anyway, I'll keep practicing at it to see if it can get better, and clear out some of my photobucket pictures since it is full .

                    LOL my photobucket is almost full too! I think I'll just make a new one.

                    Do you use a manual focus or an automatic focus? Manual is much easier IMO.

                      Haha, that is what I was thinking of doing too, no way am I paying for more storage.

                      For these it was macro with auto focusing, white balance, and ISO, the rest is manual. Forgive my ignorance, but I don't know if I can change to manual focus, I can't seem to find anything in the settings. The camera is really sensitive to any movement and it has a slow shutter speed that probably doesn't help me much.

                        Ah, a higher shutter speed would help a lot. Perhaps you should make a photography thread? We have some pretty good photographers here .

                        What kind of camera is it?

                          Yeah, I don't know how fast it is, but I know the camera on my phone is much faster. Then I have had it for a while. I got it when Circuit City was still an actual store lol. A photography thread sounds like a good way to pick up some tips.

                          It is a Canon SD750.
