Bhimaprasad Maiti: Why detail on lens,notes not furnished.Are not D.Q.factors.
Thank you for having responded to the question Bhimaprasad Maiti, at first I did not understand this issue, as it should be clear that the fixed lens compact camera.
cjf2: Great photo, Nik 2
Thank you, cjf2, for your interest and kind words.

Thank Vildbegoniya for greetings and kind words.
RuthC: Congratulations, Nik2, on this beautiful picture of a pink dahlia, and it is a worthy winner in this 'Nature in One Colour' challenge. It meets the theme of the challenge perfectly, with its many shades of pink, from the lightest baby pink through to the deep cerise pinks in the depths of each petal. These dahlias are a photographer's delight, with their absolute symmetry and precise petal shape to make the perfectly formed flower. Beautiful in every way. Ruth :-)
Thank you very much, RuthC, for your kind words and emotions, you are always very observant and accurately describe your impressions of the work. :)
The Mick: That must have taken some patience. ;o) Nice pattern and worthy shot.Mick
Thank you for your interest in the work! :)
RuthC: Nik2, you've given us another beautiful picture to enjoy in this challenge. The carpet of red coleus is a fitting background for the two interesting, dying plane leaves resting on them. I really like the bright colours of red, gold and green in the picture, and there are lots of details to study, with the light and shade. A great capture. Ruth :-)
Challenge, you, RuthC, declare, always interesting and provide an opportunity to all authors express their creativity and imagination. Thank you, RuthC, for the detailed positive feedback about this work. :)
RuthC: Nik2, this is a lovely picture which meets the theme of this challenge beautifully. Your African Violet looks very delicate with its white petals and bright yellow stamens against the velvety green leaves, and dark greys of the background. Ruth :-)

Highlands: Beautiful work--it reminds me of an old Dutch still life. I love the colors and textures, and you have a great eye for composition and a talent for post-processing. That you did this with a S95 makes it all the better. :)
Nice to hear your comparison with painting, tell us how was matched background and a place for a still life. Just on the window sill was laid window covering, natural light and a white sheet of paper as a reflector helped as the light source.
Isabel Cutler: Very beautiful image - the composition, lighting, and colors blend together perfectly. Just goes to show that the photographer has a lot to do with the quality of an image...and that we can make spectacular images with our golden "oldies".
Thank you, very interesting to read your comment. I liked the comparison of my already not a new small camera with golden ... :)

Excellent show, would love to try this delicious cake. :)
