Bought a cheapie Panasonic Lumix  FT-30 and not at all pleased with the wishy-washy colour of most sunrise photos.

 

This sunrise was supposed to be a deep, vivid orange...

Only using 0.3 OM (640x480 4:3) would the colour get better if I go for more pixels?





Cheers, Bobj.

I'm NOT a photographer mate but pic's can be enhanced using the Microsoft picture manager - already Installed on most computers / Laptops. 

 

The software Specific to the camera should also do it.

 

A Right click with the mouse on the image in your "MY PICTURES" should take you to it.

That's more like it! But, not really a fan of 'manipulating' the original.

very tricky getting the same color as what you see.

 

id start by lowering ISO & exposure on the camera (higher iso - brighter, lower iso - darker)

 

theres also nothing wrong with manipulating a photo to get it more inline with what was actually seen. I do it a lot with my photos.
