Re: focus point in Amaryllis photo?
In reply to Richard Southworth, Apr 7, 2013

The focus pixel is 1632 1224 according to EXIF. This is actually the white stripe to viewer-left of the pistil and stamen.

I don't know why you doubt the reliability of focus pixel info. No reason it would be wrong - the camera knows.

Wish we had a beautiful red flower like this in our yard! In this case I might have tried vertical orientation.

I aimed at the pistil in the front facing flower, half-pressed, and re-composed the picture.  So I would expect the rear flower to be out of focus.  I doubt that exif data would accurately locate the focus point.

Maybe I'm mistaken in calling the central item a pistil?  Stamen?  In any event those projections from the central region of the flower.
