Yes lovely colours... a small amount of infill flash would have helped to fill the shadows within the petals.

Your putting us under pressure here Garreth, letting us know your wife likes it!

It is nice, and there is a great opportunity to learn how to shoot into the sky.

The exposure is underexposed for the flowers, and somewhat for the clouds. So, when shooting into the sky, always expect your camera to underexpose your main subject, as the metering system is influenced by the sky. So, you have two choices. One is to use your exposure compensation feature, and set it to + 2/3, then look at your histogram view on the LCD. You can decide if 2/3 is too much, or too little.

Second, you can do what Trev suggested, and thats to force your on board flash to pop up, and the flash will fire at a low power, illuminating the flowers better.


The composition doesnt work well. Best if you can get the branch at a diagonal across the frame.


Loaded a mod with all of the above done.

The exif data shows you used shutter priority if I read this correctly? With this type of shot, using Aperture priority is a better choice, giving you control over dof, rather than the camera.


let me know if the mod passes the wife test!



Regards



Willie

I have to assume you flattened this on purpose. You should not have done. The potential is for an excellent image, and willie has done just that in his mod. Flat images rarely look good.
