Re: Help picking best red on Poppies in full sun.

This was taken to expose the red highlights in the flower and it was helpful to have a very  dark background. But are these really red? More oranges than full on scarlet?

FA 31 and Pentax K-5ii

I took these pomegranates on a dull overcast day in RAW then converted to jpg.The reds came out mostly to my liking though the seeds look a bit artificial. I find the best time to take red objects with this combination is on overcast dull days.
