Automatic white balance in today’s cameras is pretty good and the OM-D is no exception, but this scenario, an image consisting of various shades of green and yellow only, this is the worst case.

In general we tend to make grass much too green, and so do the cameras. Go out and look at it, even on a sunny day in Spring. Try to remember the color. Then go back to Photoshop and shift magenta into your yellows. They need it. Lots of it :)

The Song of the Day is “Don’t Let The Green Grass Fool You“, a Wilson Pickett song, today interpreted by Huey Lewis and the News on their 2010 album “Soulsville”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. I think I’ve noticed that my images from both the D300 and the Fuji X100 made the greens a tad too yellow. I usually desaturate the yellows until the glaring yellow hue is gone. But I’d never thought to put magenta into the yellows. Will have to try that.

    BTW, how is the new Olympus OM-D with different reds and oranges? Does it differentiate among them?

    Your ISO test is impressive!
