Comment: “Here we have a good example of the differences in cameras and lighting. Notice the foliage in the background – in the third shot it is quite a blue-toned green, while the other two show a yellow-toned green. Hence the difference in the color tones of the bloom, with one bringing more blue out while the other suppresses it. This is an good way to evaluate the differences in color tone when viewing two photos for varietal comparison.” – Mike, WA
