botanic gardens - flowers galore (updated)

Nyphamaea caerulea - "Blue Lotus of Egypt"

the above picture was taken at the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. attempted to capture a symmetry-ish picture, tapi takdela skema sgt kan. aaa, i suck at flowers, so i dont really know what to write bout this. haha. to appreciate this: it's quite a nice looking flower ;P

Pink flower with a yellow centre surrounded by 5 red spots (haha, i didnt pay attention to the flower labelling back then, so sape2 yg tau, sile inform ;P)

EXIF:
  • Camera: Canon EOS 30D
  • Shutter: 1/90

  • Focal length: 50 mm
  • Mode: Aperture Priority
  • Post-processing: Lens vignette, saturation and details enhancement - Adobe Lightroom 2 (yay! damn awesome software!)
ok, i didnt pay attention to the labels given for these flowers. the first flower pun i stumbled upon the label in one of the pics i took. hence the scientific name written in the caption. and the second one, I DONT KNOW. so anyone, please tell me if u know. haha. so, these are among the flowers in the botanic gardens of Adelaide. there were more interesting flowers over there and also from other occasions, but i'm so lazy to browse through all of my pics (now almost reached 8000+ excluding last year's collection of another 4000+), so i'll just upload the recent ones i took. aaa, people, please give me some support! why am i soooo lazy...... :|

suddenly i felt like playing boardgames plak. i wanna play Monopoly and also the utmost urge of playing Cluedo! what am i gonna do until the grad day! aaaaaaaaaaa...

---

up till now, i still cant accept the reality. i kept running, trying to defy my own belief. i wear facades, to avoid people from questioning me of my own reality...

...i think i'm getting tired...things happen, unpredictable things happened. to whom it may concern: i'm sorry for everything. i'll try to stay strong. i'll try to hold on. change is inexorable. but only time will decide, time will choose the change.

memories last forever...time will choose...

weih.. ISO tuh camne ko test? ko amik byk2 kali pastuh zoom ke ko mmg dh bese ngn close-up pic so pkai je iso 100 tiap2 kali?

syed abdul khaliq said...

n: ske red spots tu je ke...baiklah...u take the red spots...haha

ihsan: aa, bkn test pun. ISO tu dlm erti kata lainnye, bilangan voltage yg disupply kpd sensor camera ko, so lagi tinggi ISO, lagi tinggi voltage = lagi tinggi noise. "basically" like that la.

my advice: outdoor photo, under the sun or bright days, always take with low ISO i.e. 100. klau indoor/hari gelap, increase ISO smpai ckup utk dpt gambar yg tak blur je. jgn naikkan lebih2, nnt gambar grainy
