Photo taken of my mother's hoya which was in full bloom on a hot, sunny Adelaide (S Aust) summer morning. Camera was supported by my new Manfrotto 680B monopod, which was clearly worth the extra dollars! By the way, this is my first upload to this site.

I like it, the way the available light plays on the shapes and shades; it's a difficult shot - dim light at a low angle, and even though some pedals are a bit dark, others are nearly washed out.

Hi Ingrid welcome to the site. Nice to have another downunder contributor. I like your shot, the interloper adds interest.

Thanks for your comments, I'm quite new to DSLR's so it's pretty much trial and error at this stage but I'm working on it.
