    Last two:

    Mona Lisa (thanks, Ricky)
    General Marshall (thanks, Mike)

    I think my photos are overexposed a bit. Colors look different and a little washed out. I think my flash was going. I need to figure out how to turn it off when I don't want it. Where is that manual? Hmmmm.....

    Ana,
    Everything looks great! All of your crotons look like they're in perfect lighting. Love your Flamingo.

    Here is another photo I took Labor Day morning.

    Ana - Holy Moly! What are you doing to that Gloriosa? It never looked that good in the moose land. :D

    Ana - your General Marshall looks very happy. Should be getting some nice coloring on it this month.

    Ana - are you interested on testing your eye on the Moose photos? :confused:

    Ron, I suspected you were trying to bait me. You know, I've been scared to try because I'll never match my last score! I keep telling myself I'm not proud, so I should try. I am crazy busy the next couple of days, but if you let me know which are the unknowns (take them out of the picture) I will try as soon as I have time. I don't have time to spend poring over unknowns that just don't have a right answer though. Ana
