This hibiscus was huge. The bush was 15 ft. or more. I shot in macro quickly and in auto. I should have played with the amnual settings in such bright sun.

You're probably better off not photographing flowers that are sitting in direct sun. For whatever reason, our eyes (more likely our brains) ignore the washout of color caused by bright sunlight. One thing you can do is use a piece of cardboard or anything at all that's handy to shade the flowers.

Good point about direct sunlight! I knew it would probably do that but tried anyway.I will try the shade technique sometime. Experimentation can be a photographers best friend!
