Red flowers can be difficult to photograph and retain detail. The red seems to want to blend together with its surrounding and become flat in appearance. Care must be taken during exposure and processing to increase structure to bring out detail. All of the flower photos below were taken in Oregon during my 10 year stay there. A number of different cameras and lenses were used in this collection.
