Iris





Left to its own devices, the camera kept interpreting these wee irises as being bright white instead of the pale yellowy green they really were. I switched the white balance to "overcast" which gave a better result.

Maybe a touch too gold, compared to reality, but this is nice.

Now that is a twist worth remembering. *G* Not to mention nice photograph as well.

Heh. The trick is not to ask the question "Is it overcast?" but to go one step further and ask "What do Canon's engineers mean by overcast?" which I interpreted as being "sunlight, more or less, but not direct".
Or I could do an actual white balance, but that's too much like work.

Oh, Point, you! Yes. On a perhaps more subtle level the trick is to ask "So, just what effect do these settings apply to an image, so that I might know other situations where they apply?" Definitely, Point. ::nods::
