Lovely photos

Knowing that the 40D has a tendancy to blow/over-expose reds, would you say your photos accurately represent what the flowers looked like to you? I've only taken one photo of a red rose and the resulting photo was much redder than the flower appeared to be to my eyes ...

Thanks for sharing

Carla, thanks for your kind words. The 40D is a great camera and you will love it. The AF is so reliable! I look forward to seeing some shots from Lisbon.

Just one question
In reply to Jovo, Sep 20, 2007

Do you not drink coffee? I have a heck of a time hand-holding my 100mm f2.8 macro. Nice shots by the way.

Exposing those reds, usually they are way oversaturated, nice!

Great rose shots, I have tons of them myself. Really nice colors, and very crisp.

Shot with the 100mm f/2.8 Macro handheld at f/2.8 (a lucky shot, and I love this lens):

David, the reds are pretty true on my calibrated monitor. The reds are certainly not blown the way I found them to be with the 400D.
Thanks for looking.

looks like it is a little better with the "reds" than the 30D
