Went out to the Gardens today but it was so bright! Lovely day though.

Thanks for comments/suggestions.

I like no. two but would like it better with a little more sun. I know it's not always possible this time of year but a halogen lamp from walmart or Kmart works about as well. No. one suffers from a bad angle and again not enough direct light to bring out the color. The back side of the rose is very well shot but is so different that I can't really say I like it. And remember this is just one Daft old man's opinions!! LOL

Well TY Dawg. I appreciate the help, and don't think you're daft at all.

Tracy-

#2 is the best. Unfortunately #1 has a few blown highlights. I have the very same problem.

Is there no way to stop this- dont laugh- with the blown highlights?

It happens a lot outside during a bright day. I spend quite a bit of time moving around trying to get better light, and the LCD screen is useless, which I am sure you know as well.

TY

Tracy-

The best solution that I have found is to bracket the exposure taking a minimum of three exposures.

Also Tracy you can use a neutral density filter and a polorizing filter to limit the blown highlights. The very same things you'd do to prevent blown highlights in cloud shots!I use a gradual gray and a polorizing filter to prevent this from happening!

Ty MT and Dawg. I'll have to try the bracketing, don't have one of those filters.
