Great shots!



I don't know what to think, maybe I need to stop viewing photos on a laptop. I can tilt the screen and go from orange cast to red. Maybe it is a differentcolor cast depending on different areas? The ones I see around here are brightblood red.



Very nice anyway.

Hi all. Thanks for the input. I'm wondering if the lighting has anything to do with how the red comes out on these cardinals. I believe these were shot late afternoon on an overcast day. These were shot in RAW and I tried different white balance settings and none of them made them more red, but some made them a lot more orange.

These are very nice! I see the orange cast too, but they still look great.
