Wow spectacular colour! Well exposed... composition good, but not as earth shattering as the colour :) As in, that black box thing on the bottom left is annoying.

Hmm... megaweb eyesight better than mine! Yes, it's a wee bit overexposed, but personally anyway I'm not too bothered... the rest of the tower is exposed well, as is the rest of the scene... but as he says, maybe slightly less exposure would have been good...

Most likely is a Olympus cam, judging from the obvious CA. Lewfs, maybe you can try using the OneTouch White Balance mode next time. Personally feel that sometimes the Auto WB mode gives too much red. :)

Under the WB menu, you have the following:

• Auto
• Preset:
-Sunny
-Cloudy
-Incandescent
-Flourescent
• Manual: 'One Touch WB'


Select the Manual 'One Touch WB'

To illustrate the difference, see the two pics below:

OK. So I select it, then do I see there got 1 press OK. When I press ok, a picture is taken and used to adject the WB rite? So in to have a completely white item to take that test pic?

/me very blur. Cos some people told me I've to take a white picture using the one-touch-wb then go on to take other pictures.

But does that mean I have to bring a white cardboard to take the test pic everytime I go out?

Hmm.. once you press OK after select the OTWB, it will sort of like take a sample pic (wun be saved into your SM) to show you the effect. After that, all the subsequent pics you take will be in OTWB mode. Unless you off the DC and on again, then you have to re-select the OTWB mode again.

White cardboard? Why do you need one for? No lah, no need.

Actually, I prefer the warmer one (auto WB). The white one looks kinda unnatural. ;p

Agreed for the above two comparison pics. It depends also. For me, at times the pic is too red, so I used OTWB. Like the pic below, it looks nicer with warm one using Auto WB.

Here's some info on White Balance:

Most video systems use a "white balance" to aid in overcoming colour problems created by adverse lighting conditions. The colour balance assumes that under normal conditions, that if a white object can be made to look white, then the remaining colours will be accurate too. If the original lighting is not close to the proper color temperature (typically daylight), the "white balance" may reproduce white at the expense of other hues."


OneTouch WB usually will make lights turn whiter in my camera.

hmm... say when u shoot an image of a white object under sunlight, it appears as white.

but if u shoot the same object under street lightings(yellow), the white object will turn out yellowish.

White Balance will allow you to overcome this problem

Actually, I thought for One Touch White Balance have to point the camera at a white object?
