    Interesting subject to explore, whether something as big as a 30-ft tree should be flashed in bright day-light

    Here's the Illawarra Flame Tree in bloom, photographed on a brightish overcast day, subject is in slight silhouette. First picture without flash, second is flashed. Both shot with EF 24/1.4L at ƒ/4.5 aperture priority, evaluative metering, first pix at 1/500s, second at 1/250s (x-sync). Full EXIF in image.

    Flash used is one single shoe-moutned SpeedLite 500EX in ETTL-II.

    both pix converted straight from RAW without processing, and re-sized.

    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    I am thinking that perhaps will be good to run a fill-flash at full manual using 1/500s and ƒ/4.5, then we might see some details in the sky too. however, all these is hindsight as I can't see anything on the camera LCD.

    Choy, you should have use the metering for the sky and let the TTL flash fill the subject.

    mmm I will try that next time, althought the flash would probably only be able to cover the lower half of the tree. on the other hand the metering is evaluative, which means the sky is already contributing a lot to the exposure calculation.
