    Congratulations to jeff31 on posting the 1000th post on this thread! And, may I say - it's a very nice set of pics.
    Great pics everyone on this thread.
    Here's what I would consider to be one of the hardest to capture right in my front garden - there are several of them. Even after a few shots and underexposing and trying the flash turned down ~ I still had to reduce the brightness a tad more in curves after. This one taken around 8pm.

    -and this one taken about a month back - in bight sunlight.
    It's a touch lighter in shade than the real thing - it's actually a jolly
    dark coloured flower!!

    Here's a couple more from me. I never thought taking pics of flowers would be so fun, go figure

    jeff31, great pics, as usual. You really have developed a style of your own, excellent work.

    Geoff, I like the first dark blue one the best, it came out very well. It is amazing how many shades of dark blue there are!

    Tyger, two excellent shots. The translucent quality of the blue flower is very appealing.

    Before I go on to my contribution of the day, I would like to point you to this thread on dpreview. It may throw some light on the red-oversaturation issue. I got the idea from one of the pics below.

    Today I have another garden series, this time concentrating on yellow/orange. I'll start with light yellow, a Marygold:


    There is a darker yellow variety as well:


    Continuing in this direction we get to a yellow/orange Marygold:


    And a slightly different version of the same:


    We are threatening to stray into red territory here, so let's hang a left (or maybe right) back to yellow:


    OK, maybe a little more red, a back-lit pansy (but it has a lot of yellow ):


    I'll end with a very subtle yellow. It is really a white flower back-lit by the evening sun:

    Thanks Gerard for this link and your excellent analysis of the problem. This is so useful and does explain why the histogram says "OK" yet the mark1 eyeball often says "not OK".

    Geoff C - Sorry I took so long getting back to you. The neutral setting on the Canon A80 is not, as I said, under the white balance section but under another section called "special effects". The user guide says it tones down contrast and colour saturation. As mentioned I find it really useful for saturated colours - it certainly works.

    Here's a shot of a toad lily, I think

    Wombat - whatever UR doing with that A-80 - the results are just great!
    Interesting how they all go about things slightly differently though.
    Here's a flower in our garden that we all know - these are not quite out yet - I posted the leaf of them in the leaf thread...
