Thank you for the many good and constructive comments, this is just what I am looking for. The past couple of days I've played with the white balance on the camera and can tell the difference on the lcd. I have been wondering why I kept wanting to warm the photos up when processing in Lightroom. This morning while photographing flowers on a tree, I experimented with raising the iso from 100 to 400 and 800 as well as changing the dynamic range from 100 to 200. This seemed to make a difference in not blowing out the highlights of the white flowers while capturing some of the shadows. I also raised the iso as your lesson said this would help with blur caused by a breeze. One thing I still am confused about is how to know when and how much EV to use and how to tell if it is right when photographing. I'll post another photo when I get time, so nice and sunny out, to sit down and process in Lightroom. Your course is very interesting and your teaching techniques are very helpful.
