Colour Balance

| | Comments (4)
While we were away, we were discussing at one point how very different the countryside is in Europe vs Australia.  Stu said it must have been so hard for the early settlers to deal with the harsh Australian landscape, when they had been used to such lush countryside back in Europe.  And I said I reckon they must have gotten off the boats thinking that the colour was just wrong.  Australia doesn't do green. Compare my previous desktop to my current desktop to see what I mean...

Wallpaper - brown

I suggest the original photo does not have the correct colour balance. There is too much magenta for starters. If you could get the blue skies to match, the foreground would be a better comparison...

Dave: yup!! ;)
Fiona: yes, true :)
Gunzel: yeah I'll give you that (similar photos taken on the same day turned out a lot bluer).. but even with the sky matching, Australian bush is totally different.. just compare foreground to background foliage...
