This little flower is about the size of a US Penny(coin). I wish I could remember it's name. The lighting here is all natural with no modifications. Any suggestions?

Well done shot. GREAT lighting to me especially natural. My only thoughts are that this flower doesn't look like it grows too high from the ground... You must have been in a COMFORTABLE shooting position:G!!!

Nice shot,

Dave...

very nice..

the highlights on the face of the flower are a bit hot..but that's tough to get, because of the dark purple..

The highlights you refer to are whites. If you sample the image, you'll find that the higlights are not blown. The intent is to obtain as close to pure white as possible without blowing the highlights.

Here is A closer view.

The white specs on the petals are blemishes on the petals and not hot pixels. :-)

I can't see any problem with this lovely flower, certainly not in close, close up. You've captured a lot of detail in such a small subject. I like it.

I believe you are right, they are blemishes, I have a purple flower in my garden that has these spots all over it and I regularly clone them out on any photos I take of this flower.
