    After much thought this was the best I could do. I think the white petals and very dark centre made it harder than it should have been.

    I trust it suits my watermark better.

    If the petals were white, what happened? If it's an exposure problem, maybe shoot a bracket of 2 shots - -1 or -2 EV apart and combine them.

    Just a thought.

    Thanks for the compliments. The photos on this thread also appear to be getting sharper and sharper. Today, I had to get up pretty early....

    yepp, this is definately underexposed by i reckon 2 stops. i've shot these flowers alot and imo you need to make the white petals pop to ull it off. i often try and back off a step and let in some light towards the far corner to bring a bit more ambient onto the blue centre. if you spot meter off the petals it will turn out perfect SOOC.

    remember that the orange bits will always stand out more than the centre blue cos its so dark so imo, the closest orange bits to the lens should be the focal points, to me it looks like you focussed a little too far back.

    here's a quick rework.

    Well, pet it, let it gnaw on your fingers (ouch! Sharp!), that sort of thing.

    That little gal was only three weeks old, bigger than most housecats but still wobbly and unable to see much more than a foot in front of its face. Charming little thing though.
