It doesn't look like it would have been overexposed.... I really have no idea... looks nice though:blah: In fact, now you have great bragging rights, how many people get a shot like THAT without post processing?

ay-

That is a great photo. What happened is that the camera focused on and set the exposure based on the center of the flower, thus the background became over exposed and went high key. You accidently got a great effect. Congratulations.

Thanks Sarah for clearing this up for me. I thought that my camera had a glitch.
After reading your post. I went back and looked at the properties of this shot. and remembered switching the setting from the A mode to the S mode due to the wind was blowing hard and moving the flower all over the place.
the shutter was set to 1/200 to stop the movement. so the camera selected a f4.0 I upped the iso from 50 to 80 to gather a little more light to compensate for the faster shutter speed and that it was a very overcast day and low light.
But i did not expect the result that i got.

Looks like the dark center and yellow petals over exposed your pale sky to close to white (I sau overexposed because if you use your editing program to darken image the sun flower should get very dark and your background will return some what to its original tone).

Surprising that the yellow petals are not blown out.

Good one.
