I am curious: how do you get such rich beautiful colors in your travel photos with the G1X? How do you set your camera for this? I am fully of admiration and envy,

Best regards,

HI Krugman -

As for colors, I keep it simple...On the G1X I use "custom color" in the "set" menu, and bump up sat. and contrast and sharpness one notch. That's it. I try to use auto W/B, but often change that as needed. I seldom do much PP on G1X images.

IHope this helps ???

Disaster! This is what I was afraid of, it confirms my worst fears. I use exactly the same settings.

The clear inference from this tragic revelation is that the enormous difference in the color, attractiveness and life, between your images and mine is that you have far greater visual innate talent and are far more experienced and perceptive. And as an art historian you understand what you are photographing

I would express this by quoting this old saying.

"Many people think the camera takes the picture.

Wiser people think the photographer takes the picture.

The wisest people know that the picture takes the photographer."

So, I think that art calls to you.

Best,

Krugman
