Re: What's wrong with my 20D?

Enough already with the bad advice, misleading info, and the few and far between gems of wisdom.

1/ change the camera to sRGB. Why in the world was it set differently?

2/ set the camera to large JPEG. Why in the world would you use RAW if you don't weant to postprocess everything? RAW is a favorite of thoise who can't get it right in the first place, or you love sitting at computers instead of talking pictures. (About 1 in 10,000 photos requires RAW in the first place. Scenes of Cornwall or whereever rarely do)

3/ set the meter to centerweighted averaging when you are around scenes like the samples you posted. This keeps the sky from foolingyour meter too much.

4/ On days with beautiful skies with nice fluffy clouds, add a circular polarizer. It will make the sky even bluer, and seperate the clouds even better.

5/ Go back out and take pictures. You'll be delighted.

PROBLEMS? You might want to experiment a bit with sharpness settings in the camera to avoid playing with them afterwards in your computer.

Those were nice places to shoot int he first place. Sorry the shots were awful, but it's a color space problem.
