I've embedded the image here for convenience.

This is an AMAZING shot! Sharp...pleasing bokeh...smooth colors...complementary colors...and, best of all, the shadows inside the flower itself. Very well done! So, we can conclude the K20 is simply amazing, right ?

Great shot and as Adam said the Bokeh is very good. And yes, I love my K20D as well.

Brilliant shot, very sharp, great colors and contrast. Flower looks like it is glowing at it bottom. (ps Did you notice the little aphids on the stem?)

Well done. Cheers Kevin

Thanks everyone Are DNG raw files better then PEF? I shot in DNG when I took this picture because the the previous owner had it set to DNG. Just wondering ...thanks.

What lens did you use because as everyone is saying the bokeh is very pleasing. The K20 is a great camera so enjoy.

As far as the DNG goes thats what I shoot with becasue PS Elements 7 doesn't recognize PEF from K7 so I guess it depends on what software you are using and the camera. I didn't have any problems with PEF and the K20 though, or the K10 for that matter, so I'm not much help.

Wonderful shot.

I have to ask, where did you get a new K20D? I've been wanting to pick one up before they're all replaced by the K7 but I can't find any new ones around.
