Iris is Iris??

Another from mom's garden a few years ago.. Shot in harsh evening sun so the lens had to be stopped down quite a bit. I seem to be then and now, stuck in aperture priority..

Still happy with the shot though.

And so you should be happy with the shot as it's very good.

Very nice looking photo, the detail is great as you can see all the textures on the flower pedals. However, the colors do look slightly muted and I think the photo would benefit if the saturation was bumped up a little, other then that I think it look great.

I specifically remember processing this photo. I did try to saturate it some to bring out some of the detail color. The more I did however the more blown out and yellow everything else looked. So I decided to leave it a 0.. The flower Was after all, generally white.
