    kg the main problem with the 35 is that you do have to get very close. Even closer than the 50mm I'm told.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture

    Wow! - standards are pretty high here guys
    I haven't taken any flower shots for ages!!
    So - bearing that in mind - please don't laugh!!
    This is one of my first shots with the new D90
    I was basically testing it out - so no time spemt in carefully
    arranging or composing
    Manually White balanced (that's my usual way)
    Taken with the 16 - 85 (not even a macro lens) - at around
    85mm
    All I have done is resized to post here - no other adjustments at all.
    All things considered I felt quite posative
    Need to try taking some serious shots!!

    Wow Geoff that's just stunning and red too! I've been trying to get some shots of red peonies on another forum site recently but I just can't seem to stop the red just glowing and loosing the detail even when the flower is in focus it looks blurred. You've managed to get a really saturated red look and keep the detail. What's the secret?

    Woah Lukas - how dod you manage to find those old posts - I thought they'd gone forever!!
    The D90 is not as bad with Reds - but the underlying problem would still be there with most
    cameras.
    What I did was to click over to live view (bit of a cheat) and I work these days using the Kelvin scale
    but Daylight with fine tuning would have a similar effect.
    So what I do is compose the image then rotate the roller while the WB button is pressed and while I am in
    Kelvin - to increase or decreas until the flower looks virtually exactly the same colour
    Basically -in daylight most cameras are set to around 5200K or 5400K depending on brand
    but reds are funny things and benefit from a lower setting - so don't be suprised if it looks better at 5000K
    or even 4600K
    Then - if all else has failed - there is always Photoshop and the explanation that Lukas found.
    In isolation a strong Red, Yellow or Purple will confuse the Auto WB - so it is probably better to
    use a manual WB

    Falconest174 - nice detail in those petals showing through
    I like the fine detail and different colours in those petals

    Yes Lukas that's some serious memory skills you've got. I even posted in that thread and I'd forgotton it. Thanks for the reminder. Lots of tips to try there just need a red flower now (wind and rain got our peonies) and some time of course.

    Well - my red flower offering was the first one of it this year, (and the first with that macro
    coupled with the new cam) - the first shot was in fact slightly more orangy but a small tweak
    of the colour fixed it - the next one I took was merely dialed back a little on my Kelvin scale and
    lo and behold the same colour.
    Oddly - this is the same plant I had back in 2007 and over the past few years that red colour has changed -
    it used to be a very dark metalic shade - now it is...well - on my monitor - just how it looks on the screen
    Here's a closer look - straight off the cam - no tweaks, colour or otherwise - just resized
    Red is a little truer on the D90 over the 80 - but, TBH I still like the D80 just as much despite
    a couple of minor niggles.
