    Default do you like your photos ......

    I hope to know the preference of our local photographers.

    preference as in whether you like your photos in warm colours / tone, neutral or cool ?

    personally i like my photos to have a very warm colour....

    what say the rest.

    For me, I am depending on my mood. Do not really have a preference, but rather according to the picture.
    Let's get rolling :)

    depends on the elements in the picture

    for example, if you have a very happy girl jumping in your photo (not that i have any people in mine)

    would you like her in cool tones, or warm tones?

    Where's the greyscale black and white option? I usually shoot and process shots to B&W, depending on the overall emotion of the picture heh..

    I chose warm, because it's a common trend in all of my pics-- I love to PP them to be slightly warmer.

    warm and cool convey different feelings, emotion and mood, so it depends what you want to tell your viewer about your photos.

    no one solution fix all.

    some people have a preference mah... like having a favourite candy flavour doesn't mean you won't eat other candy

    My current preference is for saturated colours and high(er) contrast b&w ... Dunno how to choose an option from the above. Neutral bah?

    i would say it depends on situation.

    but most of the time is contrasty and saturated colours

    I like it the way my eyes see it. Natural. Does that mean neutral?

    Unless the situation calls for something cold and frigid!

    i like warm. in fact i actually liked the 'golden' look of shots taken indoors under tungsten lighting, without changing WB as i should. but others are quick to point out its a no-no. the fact is, that was how i saw the scene when i took the pic (eg, hotel lobby/atrium/ballroom) and it gives a warm cosy feeling. well its my personal preference, but sometimes i feel rules should not be strictly adhered to just becos its been laid down.
