Lovely surreal quality to this Matt and an amazing capture given 125s on ISO8000, must have been nearly pitch black wherever you were!
kind regards,
Robin

Yes, why would you use 8000, was it deliberate for the effect or did you need to you use it. I'm not good at technicals but the finished result is just beautiful Smile

Thanks Robin & Arrietty Wink
Arriety - it was deliberate. There was a breeze blowing the flowers, this rose was about 5.5ft up, and I had to take it hand held - the light was right on this rose - and I needed a reasonably high shutter speed to ensure reasonably sharp image. ISO8000 has some luminance noise in the K5, but it's like fine film grain, and Lightroom 3 handles it very well.
