Help in B & W

I took some red flower shots in the backyard and for some reason when I did the red color extraction in the camera, there are fine black spots around the petals, the color shots look fine but these black spots in B & W bother me, they almost look like very fine black peppers to me. Your input is highly appreciated.

cheers,

Rene

The extract filter built with-in the camera is a quick tool but also a blunt tool because it can't quite pick up the range of hue present in the flower.

Best method I would use is to do it in post processing. I use Photoshop CS4 and I'd use the colour range selection with localised colour clusters checked to pick up the varying shades of colour. Very quick, dead easy and infinitely better results.
