This will not be of interest to those who are here for the technology; move right along. It will also not be of interest to serious photographers, who scoff at bright pretty pictures of bright pretty flowers.
My personal favorite photographer, Alex Waterhouse-Hayward, has repeatedly and cogently advised me that contrast is the enemy, and that to best capture the essence of a flower, you want to get out of the sun. My problem is that it’s when I see ’em all lit up that I get photo-lust and go running for the camera.
So if that’s the only kind I’m going to take, I’ll just have to figure out how to do it. These ones make use of the K20D’s “Enhanced dynamic range” function. I even took side-by-side shots with the EDR on and off, and the difference is subtle but real.
