Whilst out walking in the woods I came across this foxglove, with the sun setting behind it. First attempt at this technique so I would appreciate open feedback.

I rarther like this.
Personally I would like to see the flowers a bit more saturated but thats my own taste.

broketh could be smoother but we use the lenses we have and you have made good use of yours.

Nice photo

If it was in shot Raw I would have increased the W/B at bit.From the exif I see it was shot with auto W/B.I must admit I find the auto W/B on the E3 not as good as the old E1.

Many thanks for the feedback.

I was using F4 so next time I should get closer so I zoom back a bit and open up more. This should smooth out the background a little better.

I'll try to increase the saturation in Photoshop, although it was a very pale flower I agree a bit more punch would help.

I like it too, and I'm also always amazed by the range of colours in foxgloves, some are an incredibly deep vibrant pink while others are quite a delicate shade.
