    Can't find a way to copy - so I will hand type
    ISO400, -0.7ev, focal length 70 (=105)mm, 320th sec @ f4.5
    WB Sunshine +1 blue, Contrast normal, +2 sharpness, type 2 colourspace (I think - I will have to check)

    Oh Boy oh boy oh boy!!
    tricky to answer!
    My 'standard' sort of settings (I guess) for natural photos would be
    Sunshine and bright daylight - = Sunshine WB with +2blue in the middle of the day, +1 blue earlier morning and afternoon, maybe even middle red/blue later.
    Overcast days would either be sunshine or Auto WB, again maybe +1blue ~ The Nikon seems very ready to go mad on the reds and these precautions seem to tame that right back to neutral.
    Colourspace is something I am experimenting with - It seems type 3 is a touch
    more colourfull and vivid, Type 1 seems pretty good alround - and Type 2 adobe seems good if the reds are likely to blow or if it's the middle of the day and it's all too vivid. I have set the sharpness to max - against my better judgement - it just seemed a touch soft in the middle - I may mess some more with that
    and the contrast - I either have at middle or minus one depending on conditions
    Hope that helps a bit
    Geoff

    Wow Geoff I think you just put me off getting a dslr
    Seriously do you really have to go through all that thinking before every shot?

    Visited the Hogle Zoo last weekend. The green house and former butterfly habitat has been converted into a visiting white alligator habitat. All the butterflies are gone, but the flowers and plants didn't change. The light was just perfect in the green house.

    I was using my new Canon EF 100mm macro lens on my three year old Canon 20D.

    I'm not sure what these red flowers are. Anyone know?


    The light was shining through the leaves and flowers of this Bougainvillea.

    Geof, great shot of the bee.

    Yesterday, I also took a such a shot of the bee. Basically it was a lucky shot. The bee was flying high above me so I just pointed the camera at it without even looking through the viewfinder. I was really surprised that the bee was even in focus. I could have stopped the lens down a bit more (it was at f/5, 1/3200s) but all in all, I was quite happy with how the shot turned out:

    No Phil - not at all - in fact - just the same as I was with the A-200
    Yes - I do change settings sometimes in different lighting
