Great colours

Thank you for your kind comment ! Actually I took another underexposed image just for the sky ! But I cound not manage to assemble the parts seamingless - so I painted most of the sky with PSP as a background and put the houses on top ! Dirk

Good colours


I'm surprised to see so many 8080 shots with auto WB and with correct WB (no blue cast). Most daytime outdoor 8080 photos with auto WB I had seen before came with a more or less strong blue cast. Did you perhaps also correct the white balance in post-processing ?

White ballance

You are right Alfred I should be more carefull with my notes concerning PROCESSING APPLIED ! Almost all images (esp. the shadows) taken at bright sun shine - under AUTO WB- turned out with a bluish cast. I had to compensate this with postprocessing !
