Another back yard beauty. This combined 5 shots.

Surgery went fine. Thanks for your support.

GENUINE FRACTALS - thank goodness for onOne's Genuine Fractals. The only folder from the fried external HD that for some inexplicable reason did not get backed up was the one that contained my all time favorite photograph, Tiny Cala Lilies. The only file I had of it was an 800 x 459 pixel jpg, totally unusable for printing. I decided to run it through Genuine Fractals to create a 22.4 MB tiff file. The results exceeded my wildest expectations; it printed beautifully. Whew!!

1/160 second F/4.5 ISO 400 157 mm (35mm equiv.)

Great image. The colours look really good.
Very interesting comments on Genuine Fractals.
Will have to make a mental note about that one.
