Hey Jim,
these look fantastic!
with the exception of Dianthus, it looks over saturated on my monitor.
and the lily, maybe just a tad blown but, it might just be my monitor.

Interesting - they look OK to me on my monitor. The dianthus is the only one that I thought looked like the saturation was intense, the others look fine to me (I'm using Safari on a 24" monitor). I find that the 24" monitor pretty much matches histograms when it comes to light/dark, while even with the Spyder, the monitor on the laptop is a bit lighter than it should be.

In any case, I like the pictures, at least on this monitor.

could be, I did the PP on an old IBM Thinkpad whose monitor is pretty sad.
I'll have to look at them on my desk top monitor.

Well it was pretty windy today, and I tried to wait for the blown' to stop.

The first two are my favourites, I agree the Dianthus is the only one that seems over saturated.

Great series Jim, with the second one being my absolute winner.
The white/yellow is perfect

Cheers

Looks beautiful on my monitor..are these from your yard? I remember seeing shots from your yard in the past and am envious of the "green thumbs" !

Thanks all for the kind findback. I checked the Dianthus on my 22" monitor and have to agree that the red is oversaturated. I have to look at where I have the K20D set and I also did some curves adjustment to all of these which may have contributed to the saturation. On both my K100 and K20 I notice red to be more of an oversaturation issue than other colors, and yellows are easily blown.

Jelpee, yes these are from my yard with the exception of the Pot Mum which will be going in the ground any day now. I have to give most of the credit to my wife, but I do contribute the start of season "bull" work in getting the beds ready.

Lovely, Jim. I am envious of your/your wife's garden. You have such beautiful flowers and are great at photographing them.
