    Urf,

    I see you've discovered that Nikon sometimes has an "issue" with red. What sharpening did you use on this photo? Sadly, not all shots are keepers.

    Basically, that +1 Flash EV was enough to completely blow the red channel, and once that happens, the actual color you get for reds won't be very accurate. Under these circumstances, the "more vivid" setting will only exacerbate the situation.

    If you are using Nikon software on the image, you might turn on the focus point to see what you were actually focusing on. It looks like the bud at the top of the photo is in focus. If you had the focus point centered, you're main flowers in the photo would not have been in focus. You have the same 11point AF that I have in the D200, so you should set your focus point on the point you want critical focus. That's much better than using the center focus point with focus lock and then recomposing, because recomposing rotates the focus point, perhaps giving you something you did not expect. This is especially true if taking the shot hand held.

    Some of the softness could also be from a hand held shot with 195mm focal length and 1/100 second, and no VR/IS/OS. The flash would take care of some of that, but you could still be experiencing some motion blur due to hand shake.

    rsuello,
    Wow great shots! Welcome to the forum.
    Might you share some info about the bulb shot? Too cool.
    thanks rawpaw. That pier was rebuilt about 3 years ago

    I have a shot of the full length of it

    Thanks for the nice remarks Rooz. As far as technique, I used my SB600 set to iTTL @ -1.7 exposure. I shot in manual mode f/10 @ .4 sec and rotated my camera in a circle. I shot a few other photos using the same technique, but I think the first one I posted turned out the best.

    Here is one of the wife in front of a sunset this evening.

    D80 with 55-200VR @72mm
    SB-800 to the camera's left. Next time I'll do a better job of getting her centered in the light,.. but I think the shadows are okay for this shot.

    Nice shot Classic. Next time try using a diffuser or an umbrella. Your flash angle is great.
