Something that I have used (also with a Nicon 950 coolpix) is to focus
on the midrange colours for exposure, lock the exposure by pressing
shutter part way, reframing picture, then pressing the shutter all the
way down. This helps as the camera tries to compose everthing to a mid
range of colour which is a problem with flowers that are black or
white. You can also do an adjustment to set for under or overexposing
(left hand button under screen and at the same time rotate the nob
under the shutter button) which sometimes can corect colour. Other
then that its to the photo editing software to retouch colour.
