This Week's Hot Pic: "Dwarf Ixora," by Jonathan Radin, Seminole, Florida
Jonathan writes: "I read your column about the Lensbaby 2.0 and decided to try it out. This is a shot of a newly opening Dwarf Ixora, shot through the f/8 aperture ring and the +4 macro attachment on my Nikon D50. The original image was in RAW, and I made some very minor adjustments using Photoshop Elements 4.0."
