Default E30, 50-200+EX25 Florals at the Arboretum

Continuing to work with CS5 and the newest version of Adobe Camera RAW, it just gets better and better. Today I went to the Arboretum and used the EX25 with the 50-200 SWD for the first time in a while with the E30.

After shooting this first image, I went to aperture priorty because I paid no attention and shot this at f3.5 in program mode. I wish I had used f8 instead..

Hi Greg,

My favorite is the 1st one as I don't think I've ever seen a dragonfly that color.
As nice as it is, it would be quite a shot if all of the body were in focus.

Yes, I can just kick myself for not looking at the controls more carefully when I shot this first image. For once I had the right lens mounted at the right time for such a subject and didn't look at a basic control. With CS5 and the great noise filter in ACR, high ISO shooting and noise is no longer an issue to think twice about. I changed my auto ISO ceiling from 400 to 640 (I'm probably going to ISO 1000 with auto ISO control) and most of these were shot at ISO 640 because I did start stopping down further AFTER the first image!
