Succulents are plants you love or hate. I rather like them, especially when they begin to flower – then they can produce wild and wonderful extensions of themselves. To me, they seem almost indestructible. In a succulent garden, care must be given to the plants, just as in any garden, to ensure they look their best. I took this picture with the 70-300mm on the V1, and did post in LR, DxO Optics Pro 10, and a bit of spit.

This was taken handheld to see how the Nikon 1 70-300mm VR f4.5-5.6 CX lens would do. The lens was extended to 300mm, giving it the equivalent of 810mm.

My handheld technique needs some work; I also need to choose one or multiple focal points (haven’t made that decision yet! gotta practice more!). Also, these bicyclists came out of nowhere, so I’d say I was lucky to get the shots I did.
