Thanks, Jim! I followed your tip except that I didn't manually set white balance to a patch of grass. I'll try again sometime. Thanks very much for the help.

You used a lens with a so-called "hot spot". There is a list of suitable lenses on GetDPI Forums.

Whitebalance is irrelevant; you should shoot raw and do your color ( I prefer to go B&W in post processing) in Photoshop or preferably Capture One.

Thanks, jaap. Okay, WB: one less thing to worry about then. Um, don't know if my lens is a 'hot-spot' one or if that's just my bum processing. I went at it again:



Thanks again.

They are both very different and evoke differing moods. I like them.
