I'm new to this forum and to owning a digital Nikon, just got a d5000.

I am struggling with the color settings, and appreciate any pointers to avoid the over saturated reds I am getting.

A couple of examples from this afternoon, slightly overcast; shot with the following settings; I cropped the photo, in which other flowers like blue iris are fine.
The poppies reds blend together with no subtleties.

1/160 f/6.3 iso 200
Exposure Auto
focal length 44.0 mm
lens 18-55mm f/3.5-6.6

max aperture value f/5.3
metering mode pattern
light source cloudy weather
scene capture type Standard
