IMHO with such a bright background and relatively dark subject I would like to have seen a little fill in flash to bring out a fraction more detail/light in the top flower. I like the image though, nice weather contrast between the flowers and the snow.

Yep I agree with Ingrid, also a little roting to the left I would advice...

Dear Ingrid and Fons,

Thank you for your comments. For the fill would you have used the camera's strobe or an external light source?

Cheers,
Katrina

Now you're asking! I don't know much about flash work but I would probably think that a soft external light of some sort would be enough. I would be inclined to think that if you used the camera flash from such a close distance, your colours will be altered and you may get a blown out effect. Fons is the expert here, he'll probably give you a 'real' answer. All the best.

Hi Ingrid,

Yes this was my thought exactly. I'll see what Fons had to say.

Cheers,

Fill Flash

Hi Katrina, if I may I would suggest to keep it simple and use a fill reflector that is specular, such as the inside of a Mylar? shiny" chip bag, which I always carry in my kit. The 5050 also has a very good internal flash, just turn it down -2 for working this close and if that is still too much hold or tape a little piece of Kleenex over the flash tube and viola! I have also used the little L.E.D. flashlights for this purpose! Regards, R.

Thanks Randall,
These are great suggestions and I think will help solve my fill "challenge".
