That's a unique flower, Bob,

What kind is it? But, I agree w/Justin, it does appear to be underexposed. According to my IE's Exif reader, you shot it @-1EV. With nothing bright in the scene, what was your logic behind that decision? Trust the meter, Bob! :wink: Would like to see that shot again with the proper exposure!

Very nice shot Bob. Have to agree with the EV comments. Like another poster suggested, you should be able to raise the EV level in NC without re-shooting though.

Thank you all for the comments. I was trying to avoid burning out the white spots in the background and that is why it is underexposed. This is a long learning path and I shall keep going.

Bob,

In cases like this, a little fill flash can be used to illuminate the foreground subjects against a strong back light. It takes practice to get just the right amount, but it can definitely make a big difference.
