  1. Love that cone flower shot and thanks for the update. I use Lightroom now and then. 😀

    • It’s hard to make a bad cone flower image (IMO). The subject carries the day.

      Composition will get more difficult (in the “wild”) in several days when, instead of several early bloomers, there are dozens – which tend to clutter & distract, making simplifying the image a challenge.

      • I am sure you are going to capture the best as always Ed. 😀 Enjoy my friend. *hugs*
