D200 Red Poppies C&C welcome
Some of these shots are just trickier than people realize.
Yes so true! Red is difficult to capture at the best of times but throw in wind and evening side side lighting and I was caught in a triangle of too narrow DOF at wide apertures and too slow speeds at small apertures (50mmm 1.4 lens) so had to be quite close.
I have read posts before regarding red flowers and DSLR's, and the evening sun has more red in its mix. The D200 matrix metering was surprisingly good though.
