Hope your K-50 gives you much pleasure and many a fine shot like this, John.
I like the subdued lighting which often enhances floral shots more than does bright sunshine.
Ronnie.

Good luck with the new camera gear. It will take some getting used to after the Canon compact. Its an attractive shot, though a little underexposed. May be due to light reflected by the main flower.

What white balance did you use? It appears to be more blue than it should?


Regards


Willie

Hi Willie the exposure was correct the white light balance was day light what your looking at is my processing in Lightroom. I wanted to give a luminous effect to the flowers which I believe I have done.
There again it's all a matter of opinion thanks for your comment .
Regards John.
