I went outside to take my first pictures using the FZ20. I know they are not great so please feel free to make comments so I can improve. I dont know how to add more than one picture at a time. I have tried holding down the control key, option key, shift key. Maybe it is because I am using a mac? I don't know.

Looks great, the only thing you might consider in the future when you want to shoot that close is to change your angle a bit so as to include the whole center stamen, in this one it dartsoff camera.

You may also try underexposing the shot by 1/3 or 2/3 EV especially when shooting very "sharp" (very saturated) red objects at strong light conditions, for example in the outdoor at sunny day. It prevents overflow in the red channel and the color tone (hue) malformation. If there will be need for brightening the picture after shot, it is possible to do it later in the image editor, but if the "signal clipping" occures due to everexposure, it can't be corrected.

Though, your shot does not suffers from "red tonesclipping".

But you may encounter this, if you will shoot red flowers exposed to direct sunlight.

When I will be at home, I will post an example of what I am talking about.

Cheers.
