Location: Amsterdam About this photo:

I came across these calla lilies in St. Nicolaas in Amsterdam. My wife carried calla lilies in our wedding, so we both really liked this scene.

I used a nearby railing to steady the camera. I don't know why I shot at a high ISO. The subject wasn't moving and I had a firm, steady place for the camera. The digital noise at ISO 800 isn't that bad, but it's so much worse than ISO 100 or 200.

Oh well, I practice photography and then learn from it!
