Yeah, without a doubt you can see the noise in this shot. I agree with you. I'm not a fan of digital noise in most photos myself.

I'd say you have this one down to a science with all the light there. Its really standing out good from the back. The colors are perfect and its all in focus. I just have to go out and buy me a bag of those kisses now.. My favorite and I have been wanting some caramel filled for the past two weeks...I think this a great composition. You have done so good with all the technicalities of shooting...
Anyways I have tried a halogen bulb, you say work lamps, by this do you mean the silver ones with clamps? They are a bit bright it helps to point them up at something white and have the white sord of act as a light reflector... That is what I was trying in this shot..

Though its way overexposed and I can tell it now. I have started understanding more by reading your comments on your shots. Your descriptions on your process are very much in detail and helps to think about what I can fix in my camera.

Comment by Dr.Confuser:
David, both these are pretty well exposed. Depending on what you're after in the photo, one or the other will work better for you. In this one, you have a nice histogram with pretty much all the data at the dark end of the spectrum, but have blown the whites slightly (sunlight just to the right of the center of the full flower, and sunlight on the leaves to the right. The red center of the full flower might be just slightly under exposed but it looks nice and does no harm.

This has given you lovely textures for the petals and probably pretty accurate colors. The foliage in the background is dark enough that it receeds from my consciousness. This focuses attention on the flowers, just where you want it.

Comment by Dr.Confuser:
In this version you have spot metered on the center of the full flower and the exposure there is essentially perfect. Anyone not believe me, select the center and look at the histogram ... perfect!

But perfection here is at the expense of highlights blown to a greater extent. Do we care? Depends on what you are photographing with your mind's eye and how you'll crop the final photo.

Since the photo is brighter overall, you have brought up the brightness of the background. It is more visible, you can see more detail, look at the lovely detail in the veins of the leaf to the right and below the full flower. Is this good? Or is it a distraction from the main event? Depends on what you're trying to do.

Your shaggy bush is a beautiful hibiscus! How gorgeous! Both pix look good. It all depends upon what effect you are after. This one is lighter as you can see :)

Well I say this is above average for the technical side of it all.. Its perfect right out of the camera with the correct settings. I have enjoyed reading about all the details in your exif on your shots as well as viewing them..With that said enough browsing for me, I need to get back to these settings in my camera... :)

Wich goes back to the first advice I should of followed when I started here.. John Setzler said in a comment..."Know your manual and camera inside and out.." I have to learn inside now.. :)
