    Hey guys!

    All of these were shot on the "Vivid" setting on the S2. I used to shoot in "Normal" and "Vivid" both, but I am starting to learn when to use the Vivid setting to give me the colors I like. Sometimes the Vivid setting is to much... in fact it is 75% of the time. On shots like these, when I want the green and the blue to really "pop", I use the Vivid setting. It really helps "tone down" the sand as the lighter color can really go to "white" sometimes. For these type of shots, it works really well. On some shots that have a lot of "neon" type colors, skin tones, or orange / yellows, it is to saturated. I am starting to learn how to read the viewfinder enough to know when things are overdone.

    Some people do not like this type of look though. I have had Kodak digicams in the past and they all have a lot of saturation... to the point of to much ini some shots. That is what I like though. Another thing I did was to run them through Noiseware on the "FULL (Stronger Color) setting which cleans up the noise and gives colors a nice look. Only problem with that setting is that on Macro shots, some fine detail is lost (like the barbs on a dragonfly legs) in the processing.

    Sometimes I may PP using Photoshop Elements and may use "Auto Levels" adjustment, but on these shots of the lake, it throws the water color way off of reality. Mostly though, I only use Photoshop to bump up the brightness or contrast of the final Noiseware corrected image by a bit. I almost always shoot on -1/3EV and sometimes (quite a bit actually) the image is slightly darker than I want (I need to start not doing the -1/3EV!!!) so I tweak it. I can always lighten a slightly dark pic, but it is harder to remove unwanted light it seems. One thing I have not done (and I should) is to play with the bracketing. I have been thinking that I will shoot with bracketing set on -1/3, 0, +1/3 or maybe try -2/3, -1/3, 0...

    Does this help?

    Thanks XaiLo!

    Thanks truflip, yes, it is lake Michigan. I have a few accounts around there (10 minute drive time) that I call on. When it is lunch time, I go to the beach! Why spend an hour eating when I can spend time shooting!

    Probably take a day off soon and take the family there for a day, need some time off to take more pics!

    ahh... hanging out at one of the Great Lakes.. thats awesome.. Why not eat your lunch while take pictures with the family lol. the sand looks so nice hahaha.. im a big fan of beaches-- coming from a tropical country which is made of thousands of islands (can you guess which country that is?)

    PS: I know this is a lake, but it looks close enough to a beach, I mean look at the sand.. all we need are big waves =D
