    I like #1 but both are dark on my monitor.

    When shooting white subjects like that, you have to dial in some exposure compensation, I'd start with +1 ev.

    Thanks for all of your feedback...much appreciated everyone! Did some more reading last night and this version (and yes, sadly had to bin the flowers) Perhaps a bit too light? Or just right? I don't know. Macro 60mm f2.8 macro lens, f/14, ISO 100, 1.0s

    Edit: Here's a bit darker--gotta trust my eyes instead of the software:

    I like the first one the best out of all three, it's well balanced and the flowers look really crisp. Flowers are a fun subject! I don't know anything technical about cameras, but if you're using macro why not get right in there super close to the flower? I took a bazillion close-up pictures of flowers this summer with my point-and-shoot Canon and got some really interesting shots that way. Now I have a dozen or so framed flower pictures on my walls, lol

    Hmm...a bit too much light this time...but just barely.

    Light is hardest thing to get a handle on...the main reason I don't take photos...

    Posted a darker one underneath the first (final) one. The first final one is indeed too light.

    I didn't get super close to the flower as I wanted more in the frame. May pick up some single flowers tomorrow or Friday to play around some more.

    Second one is much better, the first one looks washed out compared to it

    Ok the second pic is a little better. But you have to watch where your flash is going to hit. You have got the middle and one on the left well lit. But the one on the right is in shadow. You have to try and not only centralise " frame " your shots. But also watch what is going on with your lighting. White is a very hard colour to get a decent pic of, so is red and so is yellow just so your aware.

    Thanks...I'll look for flowers on Friday that aren't yellow, red, or white...I didn't realise until yesterday when Brookfish told me that white was the hardest to shoot. The right flower is not as well lit as I didn't use a flash for the shot, but only the light from the (left of frame) window and the overhead light from a chandelier. I see I have plenty of work to do still on setting and framing. Also, I think I'm taking way too many shots at one go and getting confused on settings.
