Notes

I finally got my AF to nail one of these tiny 2-inch-wide flowers during that gently breezy afternoon. So I decided it needed cropping by about 400%. Shot hand-held about 3 feet from the bloom; 270mm; f/5.6; 1/500/sec; ISO 200; negative 1/3 exposure compensation; center-weighted average metering; RAW. Only very little post editing needed, with less than half the default color NR, zero luminance NR, and hardly any sharpening (most of it merely done in ACR).
