I can not believe that nobody knows what the result the OP is getting is from. Even Mike is wrong....

The answer........ Its the cross process settings. go to your quick menu and disable the option.
Does this look familiar.....

He may well have filters enabled but the main issue is overexposure

besides the k3 does not have cross process as a locked in filter options are

extract color, toy,retro,high key,vignet,invert,unicolor and boldbw

the auto shots are at around EV16

the tav shot is around EV14

Even without metering using Sunny 16 (bright sun in sand) then EV should be around ev16

Giving an exposure = 1/1000 F8 @iso100

yet he shot 1/200 f8 @iso100

The image is over exposed by about 1 stop
