Tulip season!

Wow, Steve, amazingly pure red petals on my sRGB monitor.

Thanks, Ted. Interesting as these Tulips (which are massive) where supposed to have a touch off orange in them. Hum.

Here is chaenomeles Japonica (Quince) which I think is proper red. Is it? It look much more blood red. Shows how colour is very subjective.

Hello Steve. I must admit that my comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek.

As you know, between the spectral reflectance of flowers and the final processed image, there are many opportunities for gamut-clipping and the petals in your first image were mostly "blown" on my monitor.

The Quince on the other hand only slightly here and there and looks fine.

A couple of saturation maps for you (white=100% saturated):

Happy Easter Sunday - I've a fridge full of IPA ...

Pardon any correct nomenclature or credible references in this post ...
