What is your WB setting ?
In a normal day with sun, WB should always be "Sunlight" and ISO is 100 and shuttle speed should be 1/125. Set you EV to -1/66.
The color should came out correctly. I've tried it and the color should be accurate. The auto WB should be a bit on the red side.
If you are using ISO50, the shuttle speed should remain at 1/125 but the f-stop should be at F3.3 or F4. This will give you a more accurate color. :)

The WB setting is sunlight. :)

I read through the Dec 2004 issue of 'Practical Photography', it is stated: "The success of selective focusing is dependent on the chosen aperture, the focal length and the distance between you and the subject...[pg.16, "Isolate your subject"]"

Seems like there is no hard and fast rule though.... :dunno:

frankly, i find that the first shot is better coz in the second shot, the bokeh at the background is more distracting, taking the eye away from ur subject...
