FoxgloveHi there Tim,

Just thought I would throw a few words your way regarding your shot just for betterment Smile

With regards to your photo it is a touch blurry, I believe that you had a rather longer than needed shutter speed, therefore capturing camera shake in the shot.
When using hand held it is always best to use a shutter speed of or quicker than 1/250th of a second, that way you minimise the chance you will get a blurry image (unless intended ofc)
Automatic exposure should do an OK job with the exposure of an image (unless for example it is getting dark) then you need to take charge through a manual mode, but just looking at your
camera specifications I see that it doesn't have a manual mode. Well the text already written is food for future thought Wink

Instead there are 2 things that you can try to betterment with what you have at the moment. That would be to either use a tripod/monopod and or try the different settings that your camera allows. I see there are 14 scene modes
and hopefully one of them will be better suited for the specific kind of photo your trying to take.

I hope this has maybe in some way helped you.
If you want to see what a foxglove looks like with control of manual settings you can check my portfolio as I have also funnily enough uploaded a foxglove earlier on today.
