Default FZ35 - Bad colur in landscape mode

Hi All,

I have recently bought Panasonic FZ 35 and had taken some pictures on a FARM. I used landscape mode to capture the photos. It looks like the photo colors seems to be very bad(blue rich and less green). I am attaching a sample photographs for your review. Can you please help me what I could have done wrong? Or is there something wrong with the camera?

Welcome to the forum. Your picture is too small for a
critical analysis. The camera EXIF info was also lost
in the conversion to PNG. Are these photos anywhere
on-line so that we can have a closer look?

As far as I can see, your picture looks reasonably good.
Landscape mode makes changes to colour saturation
and contrast. If you don't like the result, you could use
manual settings or shoot raw so that you have more control
over the final output.

Not having looked at the scene myself, I can only guess what it should look like. It may be that the white balance is a bit off. You could try retaking the shot, if possible, using standard settings, and changing the WB manually to Daylight, or Cloudy, if the daylight setting doesn't look right to you.

Like Brian-

I believe that you had the White Balance set incorrectly. In addition the photo was also slightly over exposed.

There are a lot of green tones, you can also use them for correct exposure (You may arrange EV). I agree with others there can be white balance issue too.

And you are shooting in very bright sunlight in the middle of the day. That is not a good time of day for photography. The colours will be washed out.

Dose this shot have some issues with white wash !??? I had gotten my study going and partly done in my weaving remember I mentioned the poker draw one of my hands was triad of blues .. in my study on triad is how equal amount of the three color will turn to white. I am thinking with enough of the green and blue in the shot will have the affect of white out... am I kinda correct on this? I know there is not yellow or red here but you see that comes in forms of the actual shot we have to include the suns coloring as well ... kinda hard to explain unless the missing is put in place. So with the equal amount of colors of the blue sky, green leaves /vegs and red / yellow sun viola there is a white out.... Ta ta I love this act...

I am thinking if you were to have made a cone of the darkest paper (home made Lens Hood) to place around the lens it would of balanced out the color some...
