Thanks, Dave. Actually, these are buds, not flowers (yet). And the colours are not natural, but software enhanced and so is the vignetting. 35-mm SLR lenses do not vignette naturally on the small sensor of the Q. I quite like the result - the original images are considerably duller.

Wow, if nature could really produce such coloured things like that, wouldn't the world be a more interesting place.

Mind boggling! Post processing has definitely become a legitimate form of art.

The next day I went back to the same placed with K-r + SMC-A 35mm f/2.8:

The above shot was processed from raw. Below is the jpeg out of camera after resizing and sharpening only.
