Another one of my wife's gardening efforts. I thought this turned out very well. I did some PP Editing, adding in just a tiny bit of brightness since it was an overcast day, and a bit of sharpness. This camera lens combo does a wonderful job in handling the reds. Thanks for looking and please feel free to offer comments/suggestions.

Rgds,

Well, once again it appears as though I lost a bit of brightness. Not too bad, overall.

I did notice that its a little on the underexposed side... and also I would keep the saturation in the reds a little bit down... but that's just my opinion and I'm far to be a professional

When photographing reds, and whites for that matter especially with flowers underexpose and then touch up the contrast and brightness in PP. Keep the saturation down a bit. I know this when using macro lenses, like the DFA 100 macro, FA 100 macro and Egalem's preferred the Sigma 105 macro.

I understand what you are saying. However, as I stated up top, I lose brightness and often times sharpness when uploading here. So, now in hopes of avoiding these issues I am uploading my files to Flickr.com., and will then upload them here. I do not have these problems when uploading to Nikonforums.com so I do not know where the problem stems from. I am always careful to downsize to the recommended dimensions. Thanks again for your input.

Here is an adjusted version. I had to pump up the brightness in hopes it will survive the upload.

Thanks.

Antonio

P.S. I do not see any noticeable improvement.
