You've caught this extremely well - especially the sun in the cup of the Buttercup - who likes butter

Great presentation of this buttercup. The DOF is great and the light.

I'm no expert - but the focusing is concentrated on the outside - you would have to come in from a different angle to get the centre - as using AF sometimes I use this for convenience but then I will go into the A Setting - so I can be selective on my aperture and EV values - getting the whole image focused also depends on what lense your using - these are things I would do - I'm no where near up to scratch especially to some of the images on here -

Barbara is right about the point of focus - I think, although it may just be an effect of the "glare" that comes the bright light in the cup.

I find yellow almost immpossible to expose / focus properly. I don't know if it is a characteristic of the canon CMOs sensor or not?

I like this image despite the comment above. The detail of the hairs on the flower and the contrast with the soft green background is lovely

Thanks brian1208 playing with and balancing ISO and F stops and also under exposing seems to be the key I guess. I will keep pplaying and experimenting

I agree about the focus and the 'glare'. What do you have the contrast set to on your camera, sometimes it needs taking down a notch. The Pentax I use struggles with reds and yellows, I was trying to find some information that Mattmatic gave me on this particular issue but struggling to track it down. Underexposing could solve the problem. K.

I think this is a lovely shot,basically just a weed which looks gorgeous here,the light I like and the detail of the hairs is great.The muted b/g is good too.

Thanks answersonapostcard, the first shots where upped by one on saturation and sharpness and exposure was default, I had to set SAT and SRP to default and underexpose by 2 steps... then it seemed to work. Well better any way
