I played around and I think I've figured out what it was. It was the picture style that was throwing off the colors. Here is what it is supposed to look like thanks for the suggestions melanopsin!

I was just going to suggest picture style. I saw similar results when shooting with "Standard", I've since switched to "Neutral".

What's odd is that I shoot in RAW and I thought I had read somewhere on here that picture styles aren't applied to RAW images?

the biggest difference I see between the two is the first was shot in bad lighting with harsh shadows and is slightly under exposed compared to the second.

actually, the first was shot in better lighting, late afternoon sun at a beautiful angle. the second was shot on an overcast day with very flat lighting. Not sure how you define good lighting, but I think I have a different opinion. in addition, the second was edited where the first is straight out of the camera. the question, however, was about the capturing of color and I was not seeking your criticism of my lighting.

Overcast is mostly considered better lighting in photography than harsh direct sunlight..light can effect color. Maybe pick up a copy of understanding exposure?

I have a copy! And fyi, the hour I shot is considered the photographers golden hour. What are you trying to prove exactly? In general, flat light renders landscape photography rather.....well......f​lat

Glad ya got this worked out :) I've read on here as well that Canon sensors don't tend to capture reds 'correctly'.

Yeah...the picture styles don't apply to RAW images themselves. But, they do apply to the preview you get when you chimp with the LCD screen. What you're viewing then is a jpeg thumbnail of the RAW file (it's embedded w/in the RAW file header), so that preview gets the selected picture style.

Since that thumbnail is embedded w/in the RAW, & if you're shooting images as standalone RAW files (not RAW+JPG), you'll still only see the .CR2 file & no corresponding .jpg file.

^ I was shooting strictly RAW, and the results I was seeing were after the file had been run through ACR. Reds and pinks were really over saturated. Since switching to Neutral I have not seen this happen anymore.

I should say though that the other change I've made to my workflow is to have ACR use "Camera Standard" instead of "Adobe Standard" and this seems to provide more realistic colors.

It doesn't really matter what hour it was that you were shooting at, it rendered shadows which are visibly covering your flowers creating inconsistant tones, whereas the diffuse overcast sunlight is diminishing those tones and creating a more accurate representation of the original tones.

hmmm...i honestly don't know what to say about that ;) doesn't make much sense to me either! I'll try to play around with doing something like that & see what comes of it. I use LR, not ACR, so dunno if that'll make a difference or not.

hopefully someone else w/ more know-how will chime in & have an explanation
