A lovely portrait of an equally beautiful flower. Is it a little over-saturated. I think some of the detail in the petals has been lost in the post processing.

That was the natural colour of the Rose so maybe the lighting let it down a little.

It looks over-saturated to me, too, and also there's considerable haloing.

DSLR's in general over-boost the reds, Pentax worst of all. When I'm shooting a primarily red object, I frequently apply -1 EV.
