Re: I took 15 pictures... I took three more

There is a subtle difference in your histograms, Jonas. I did three (admittedly not retentive enough to post, but easilly acurate enough for the task at hand) shots, and when the exposure is cranked up a bit, your subtle differences become pronounced.

Clearly a good policy to use an apropriate white ballance for the situation - and even potentially use an incorrect one if you know you're going to be photographing specific bright colors.

I just wonder if the correction is digital or analog. Need to dive into the numbers more closely to figure that out, though. Very interesting stuff.
