St. Albans Abbey

Were my settings the correct ones to use?

E-510 - A.mode - F5 - ISO 800 - 1/25"


Kind regards. Barr1e

Re: St. Albans Abbey

Exposure looks spot on to me. I suspect the lovely warm colour is due to white balance. What WB setting were you using and is the actual colour of the stonework greyer?

Looks OK to me. You've done a good job of straightening the verticals too.

Re: St. Albans Abbey

I enjoy using the camera distortion section in Elements 5. I could have produced a better image but guests arrived to go to the curry centre.

Thanks very much for your comments.

The Abbey was being used today for a graduation ceremony and the lighting seemed to be more warm than usual.
I used my Expodisc, to set the white balance, so easy to use with the Fn button. Exposure Value Bias -1EV

Regards. Barr1e

The picture is still quite warm (though not undesirable at that) - if I recall you should point the camera, with Expo Disc fitted, at the light source rather than the scene itself?

Using RAW would (well, some might debate this...) make your Expo Disc fairly redundant because WB is infinitely adjustable in RAW.
