Here's another pansy. Taken this morning, this is the third attempt.!
The first was at -0.3ev and the centre detail wash washed out. (Dark colour, dark background - I should have known!!) Shutter speeds were getting a bit slow for the breeze - so I changed from iso50 to iso100 (one stop). Then the final exposure was at -1.3ev, f3.5 and 1/80th sec
This image looks the most like the actual flower - so that for me is target achieved. Comments appreciated.
