Default FZ35 - Spider Day Lily

While out working today, I found a bed of unique day lilies. The color was unique, as well as the size (6-7 inches across).

An overnight rain took away some of the quality of the blooms. But, ...

Shot in P mode, AF Macro, center-weighted exposure, 1-area focus, autoWB, autoISO. Contrast 2, Sharpness 2, Saturation 1, Noise -2.

Thanks for all the comments.

I've been shooting lilies now for the past couple of weeks. But, after reviewing these pics, I am wondering if there is another way to make the shots. In other words, they all start to look the same in terms of composition, viewpoint, etc. To be sure, each image is unique in its own way. For example, the colors on this one really make this a nice set. On Friday, I'm expecting to find similar lilies, only in red (the person saw these images, and promised me red ones on my next visit).

Low shots with sky as backdrop does not seem to work very well. Many of the days, including the day these were shot, have been overcast. Deep blue might work, but clouds quickly wash out the color.
