    I hope you don't mind if I use your shot to bring up a point/question. Even though, you mananged to capture "red" well, why is it that digital cameras do not "read" the color red. I have always dissapointed with my results.

Nicely done, Dana. Looks like your color here is spot-on for this flower.

Thanks Murry and Brinn! Brinn, do you manually adjust your light meter? I do not leave mine on automatic because I find that the saturation becomes too much! I can never capture red or hot pink with the white balance on auto... I have to set it manually according to the light conditions.

Good point! I find myself over-looking the light meter! It's set on auto... and now I know why I get those results!! Thanks so much for the reminder - check, check and double check before shooting...

Same here, the camera doesn't like red, so you have to switch to manual to overcome that problem!

Well Brinn, it took me a while to get used to setting mine too... But once I learned how, it made all the difference in the world!

Sometimes using the"wrong" white balance can lead to an interestng shot.
I was shooting a tin of green Altoids inside and forgot to change the WB setting from Daylight to Tungsten, and came up withis lovely burnished golden color.
