Color in Camera
before I move on from color, I want to mention something relating to how digital cameras deal with color. Now we tend to think of colors. Objective readies. Red green is green. In reality, as anyone who's color blind will tell you, color is subjective. And just as you and I see color differently so to our cameras. Now, to show you what I mean, have a look at this image on the face of it, this is a great elephant in a green field.
