Very nice shots and enjoy viewing

Need to ask you what's the setting of the WB when they were taken.

I am still experiencing/trying out the different settings of the WB relative to the weather conditions - sunny, cloudy, etc on my FZ50

I've had numerous digital cameras (6+) and I've found cloudy white balance generally gives the best overall color for all outdoor conditions from bright sunlight to cloudy overcast. (Indoor lighting is another matter.) That's what the setting was here. If I were in a situation where I wasgoing back and forth from indoors to outdoors I would set it to auto wb.

EXIF viewer - There are a few exif viewers that can be operated via your web browser. One of the best is Opanda iExif. Currunt version 2.26 is a free download at http://www.opanda.com/. Once installed, you can right click on an image and choose to view the exif data through Windows Internet Explorer, assuming the exif is still intact. (There is a seperate download for Firefox.) The white balance setting shows up as 'Light source'; in this case, 'cloudy weather'. It's an excellent tool.

Thanks for your prompt reply

Yes Ihad download the EXIF viewer already.

Viewing your shots again did confirm my guess that the WBs were set to Cloudy.
