The reason I asked is that particular flower is very purple down here in my yard, and one that Olympus cameras tends to reproduce more on the blueish side. If I change the WB to shade or cloudy, it then tends to more accurately reproduce that particular blossom. Have you tried that with that flower before?

Funny... That's what I had the WB set for!
