Here's my second attempt at photography. Took this a little while back. It's a close up of "fireweed" in northern Saskatchewan.
Edit: I saved the picture as a higher resolution this time around. I lost the metadata somewhere along the way so I'll post the important stuff.
Camera - EOS Digital Rebel XS
Lens - Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Shutter time - 1/83 s
Aperature - f/5.7
ISO - 100
Focal Length - 55mm

I did some minor editing with GIMP which involved making it brighter, giving the green a little more colour and making the flower more pink and less purple (which is what it actually is).
