Problems capturing color

This is from Tuesday when I spent a great amount of time trying to figure out why the color in these two images look so dramatically different from two different cameras when they had the exact same settings (ISO, White balance, shutter speed, and aperture). The one from the much less expensive Canon Digital Rebel is actually the correct color, but for some reason, when I use a blue gel on a black background, my Nikon D100 captures it as purple. If anyone out there has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

These are a couple of shots I took at my mother-in-law's on Sunday. She lives on a farm in Greenup, Ky., and has tons of flowers, so the place is a photo goldmine. I'll post some more of my shots from there later, but for now here's a couple of close-ups of ants crawling on some of the flowers that are about to bloom.

Neat effect

This photo of an award sitting in a mirrored case looks pretty neat because of the type effect. Normally, in a reflection, the type is reversed, but the mirror is picking up the back of the glass (which is also reversed) so the reflection shows the text correctly again. Little things like that amuse me, I guess.

To crop or not to crop...

Here's a flower pic that I shot with the intention of cropping really tight to get a really zoomed in close-up, but I think I ended up liking the original shot better before cropping.
