    Nice contrast

    Did you photo-shop the background to make it black ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    No I did not. I use a flashgun, iso 100 and very small apertures and if that combination is used correctly then the light only hits the subject and does not travel far enough to illuminate the background.

    Which is far less work than shopping a background! ;)

    Indeed. Get it right in the camera, then enhance in the digital darkroom

    So, what gear are you using? Colours remind me of an older Canon. But the lack of red clipping on the rose could even mean it's a pentax.

    Red clipping? Not sure what you mean by that. This particular variant of rose looks exactly like this image, fading to a darker red on the outer petals.

    I have Sony and Konica Minolta cameras. These were taken (I think), using my Sony A100 DSLR and its kit lens; the 18-70mm F4.5-5.6

    That kit lens was okay at best. It really suffered when it came to colour reproduction. I far prefer the older Minolta glass or the Sony G series lenses when it comes to colour reproduction.

    Red clipping is when you totally blow the red channel and you lose all detail in it. Look at a combined histogram and the picture looks fine. Look at a histogram for the red only and you will see a massive spike on the right of the histogram. My nikon's are very sensitive to that in a particular shade of red

    The skirt of the old lady here has it:




    As do the very brightest parts of this tulip:
