a99 and colours
Lovely colors in that photo John.
This is one of the first things I noticed when I began using my a99...I took some snaps of my daughter and when I viewed them in ACR, my jaw literally dropped. That night I sat in front of my computer and processed some of my daughters pics and just stared at them while having a drink; I was mesmerized.
The white balance of the a99 I believe has a lot to do with it, but, it also seems to accentuate the right colors, especially with skin tones. The Canons I had before were also quite nice in the skin tone department, but the Sony takes it a bit further.
