Very nice depth of field in shooting these. Pretty shade of purple as well. Are these JPEG or RAW captures, and is the shade of purple a good reproduction of the original? Outdoors, I have to be sure and dial in an appropriate white balance for purple, or just shoot RAW and get it right later. Auto White Balance has turned more than one purple flower blue on me.

Really pretty colors that you captured on those shots. I also agree with Greg, I've learned from experience that outdoors in sunlight, I have to change my white balance to keep the purple from turning blue on certain flowers. Is the problem eliminated by using flash??

These are JPG, Greg. The purple in these are spot on. I used a backlight on them, too. These were shot indoors with the 18-180 and diffused Vivitar 285HV for the backlight.

Cool.

I shot something similar to that a while back with my E1 at the Dallas Arboretum, but they were yellow and the day was overcast so the the background just went dark because it was all shadows..

ooooooooooooo yeah! I did use a backlight on these. I think that helps on this type of shot.
