Michael asked about the settings for my Slinky image as his were quite white in comparison.
F/4, 1/2000, ISO 2,000, Ex. comp -3, AWB, Evaluative metering, 60mm, Picture style A.
The previous image I took was not so colourful and the difference in settings was 1/500 and 88mm.
So I can only conclude that where the focus point is placed and the amount of zoom makes the difference in the outcome of the image. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
