Hi! I'm fairly new to my D7K coming from a D90. I love this camera and have many photos that are beyond my dreams. However, I totally botched a set of closeup pictures of some wonderful tulips. I was very excited with the sun coming from the back giving a nice glow into my sun room. I had my tripod out and ready. I was interested in the center of the flower being most in focus although I also would like to know how to get the entire flower in focus for better cropping.

Thanks in advance for your comments. Following this forum has been a wonderful learning experience for me even if I don't understand in the moment what I am reading. Eventually, with practice, some of it sinks in!
