    Hello Maura. I checked again. It does say ISO 125. that was set automatically by the camera. I was the one who manually set the exposure to a neg 1.7. I wasn't using the Night Shot mode. I don't have a tripod so I have difficulty with that mode. It was on a "program" mode where one can change some functions manually. Whatever! Anyway, I'm glad that you enjoy these photos of mine.

    Yes Zainal, they do look a bit different, especially the dark colored ones. That dusky dendrobium looks fantastic under the moonlight with the silvery white back of its petals.

    You are very welcome, Patty. You make me smile at the way you express your thoughts.
    This morning, the air was filled with the powdery fragrance of the dendrobium crumenatum. The scent was all over the garden, the house, the garage, everywhere. Too bad I couldn't take a night shot of it since it is fully open the whole day but slowly closes as night falls and drops off the next day.

    Angel - feel free to ignore me politely when I ask all kinds of questions about photo-tech stuff - I DO enjoy your photos - I'm just not satisfied with my own, and I try to learn from others.

    It's no problem at all Maura. In fact, I'm learning too because of your questions.

    Thanks Bruce. By the way I forgot to mention that that white dendrobium is fragrant.
