    Pls take a look.

    It looks very saturated. It is unlike the pictures in the "Pictures from LX3" thread. They look so clear.

    Pls advise

    U are shooting at night with street lamps providing the light source. What was your WB setting when u took your pic? I suspect the problem lies with your WB setting.

    You can try setting the white balance manually. However, most street lamps are difficult because their spectrum has a few very strong peaks in yellow but little elsewhere, making white balancing impossible.

    its white balance off.... you can use a gray card to set (or the more expensive version: expo disc)
