Tell me about it; I took some pics of the flowers in our gardens; I had to throw out most of them due to over saturation. I only was able to get one good reddish Petunia and some Lychnis. Even those, I had to play with them to get the details. Point and shoot cameras suck. I also had to change the settings to "Beach" to tone down the o/s.
Totally agree Mac. I shoot in manual mostly but if you have the ability to shoot with exposure compensation, this will be a good time to use it and underexpose. In these special cases of strong reds values, I look at my RGB histogram instead of the histogram brightness. In brightness, the image will fool you time after time. I always chimp my shots with strong reds or it's just a wasted shutter click.
Someone over at Flickr must like this image. It's Explored
and is racking up the hit rate. I'm grateful for the noticing here and at Flickr.
Thanks for your addition Mac.
