i'll bet they never spill a drop.. i really like the one with all the little drops. nice shots but the WB seems to be off.. looks like you were fighting a number of different light sources..

Yes whitebalance and indoor photography is something that I have a lot to learn about, and haven't really looked into.

Just used the automatic whitebalance, although I probably should have used tungsten...

Using that one often gives me quite cold images when I want them warmer though...

I guess I'll have to read the flash thread one of these days...lol

flash would have would have helped the WB. i've got a 4x5'' gray/white card in my bag, just in case. shooting raw takes care of it also. BTW??? what does TDN stand for???

Flash would not have helped - I hate it. Let me try our luck if I can improve #2. A superb pix indeed.

p.s. Nope . Not much can be done after the fact. Only brightened it.

Lovely pictures - love the second one. Keep a piece of paper or a grey card in your photo bag and set the custom white balance. It only takes a second to do, and makes a huge difference. Just my personal experience, but I don't find the tungsten setting quite right. It's better than AWB in most cases, but still slightly off.

Daniel - Pretty good effort, it looks less "off" to me (but I'm using the laptop's monitor and its color balance is a little off).
