You can say that two times! I like the way the light plays on the rose. About half is in shadow but in this setting, it works. Good job.

Thank you!

That picture is the best in a 30 pictures serie.... Some other were OK too, but the rose was yellow... and my camera seems to dislike the red colour of roses!

It is probably not just your camera. I have noticed that many digital cameras oversaturate reds to the point of losing important detail. Both my Nikon D100 and Minolta S414 are guilty. Your best bet, if the camera can do it, is to set it for a lower saturation level when shooting scenes with a lot of bright reds. This is probably a menu setting and may be labeled something other than saturation.

From a historical point, all color print films including the expensive professional films have difficulty with reds. The only way to get sharp red on film is to use a good quality slide film
