Default What few degrees of difference make ???

Same guy 3 shots apart while my kayak was floating pass - I guess it's all in the lighting depending on where the sun was coming from:

500mm, 1/1000s f/9.0 @ 09:17:40








17s later 500mm, 1/1000s f/9.0 (@ 09:17:57):

That reminds me of this article:

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/es...0seconds.shtml

I've seen that kind of thing a lot when taking photos along the Ogeechee River banks in the early morning (something I used to do quite often).

But, I think some of the differences have to do with way the Auto White Balance is responding with lots of reflections from the water (instead of a major change in lighting), if I try to use Auto versus a preset like Shade to get warmer colors.

I prefer your first example. That's a really nice image. It looks like you've been having a blast with your D300 and Bigma lately.

I guess it could be the auto white balance, but If you notice the brown turtle shell (ignore the reflective part), the yellow/green turtle head and the drift wood are all the same color; However the background varied from deep green in one shot to deep blue in the other due to a slight position change in the water...

You're probably right, although I suspect that WB probably played a small role, too.

Regardless of how you got the shot (with mother nature chipping in to help out), that first one is pretty nice.
