    Went to the park a while back and never got to posting these up. However in these shots I was trying out the custom white balance feature. There has been no post processing on these as of yet. Let me know what you think.

    Sorry PaQ,neither do it for me.
    They aren't the 'normal' colours and it stands out more on people (if that makes sense!)

    So the color actually distracts from the people?

    I like the fact that your trying new things, more people need to grab their camera and push things, thats how we learn...

    I don't think the color adds anything here but I could think of a situation where the different white balance could create a mood...

    Glad to see you experimenting, but in this instance the colour of the light is too distracting for me. Remember that the main thing is that you enjoy the photo's as you take the shots that you find pleasing.

    Thee compositions and subject are nice though

    hey thanks guys, well you learn something everyday. However the first shot I went with that custom color because it got real cloudly and gloomy. As for the second shot I was trying to go with a warm feeling with the sun in the background. Thanks for the comments will keep on shooting.
