Re: Red glow

Yes; I think the natural tendency is to focus on the tips of the petals, but with such shallow depth of field, and such an intense red colour that doesn't reproduce well in a photograph. I actually focused on the yellow thingies inside the bud. A smaller apperture would help depth of field, but I wouldn't want to close down beyond f8.0 as there is a chance that diffraction would reduce sharpness.

I will try again tonight, and might try my PowerShot G11 for interest, just to see how it copes.
