More experiments with the D100: the idea was to see if I could beat the burn-out problem I've noticed on a couple of occasions in white subjects.

In this first shot the water lily was brightly lit from the side by the sun, while the leaves and water were only partially lit, or in the shade. I used manual mode and underexposed by about 1/3 stop. The hoverfly was an unexpected bonus - they move incredibly fast.

AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8 at 70mm, 1/125 sec, f/10

In this shot the Mock Orange was brightly sunlit from above. Again, I used manual mode and slightly underexposed.

For both photos:
White Balance: Direct Sunlight
Tone Compensation: Less Contrast
Colour Mode: Adobe RGB

Images were saved as uncompressed NEFs and processed using the Nikon View 5.1.1 plug-in for Photoshop. In each case the mid-tones were pushed using curves to bring the exposure back into balance.

What do you think?

Alan.
