Hi Kyogle

Any Melbourne shots I've done under these lighting conditions have the same look to them as yours and I always love the way the sky renders.

AWB balance on the K-5 is the best approach I feel.

Did you shoot raw?

If so the raws are immensely tuneable. Having said that, mucking around with balance in post doesn't give any better result than out of camera, other than a bit of tweaking here and there.

S, I reckon you got it right.


Hello Andrew

Thank you for your comments. Yes, I shot RAW and Jpg but only processed the jpg for these shots. I played around with WB in Silkypix Pro 5 but didn't like the results any better than simply using camera's AWB.
