In Photography, Timing Is Important

If you want to take pictures of your flowers, do it just before sunset to get the color just right. In bright sun the color bleaches out.

I agree Hetty
you are so correct so important in trying to ID a plant or sell a plant. Even if you are not doing either just to have its true beauty to remember and show

here is a series of 3 shots and the last darkest is the true orange of this fire hibiscus but they look like 3 different plants

Sometimes early or late is all that works for me...if even that does. I live in a sun country, so to speak. I've even tried to block the sunshine with my body, but usually doesn't work. And I have the most trouble with blooms of white or blue! I don't know how to use my current camera correctly. Trial and error...lots of errors!
