That's what they used to say but in this digital world of HDR and airbrushing my reply to that would be humph!
I set the Lumix TZ7 to take three shots of the same scene at -1 0 +1 EV
Then I combined them as an HDR tonemapped image using Photomatrix so as to make the sky a bit more dramatic at the same time trying not to make the green areas too unrealistic.
Then, being the inveterate twiddler I am, I thought I would further process the HDR image in Paintshop Pro using the ReDynaMix plugin. I also cropped the result.
Which of these looks like the scene as I saw it? None of them. The digital camera doesn't see the full spectrum range our eyes see or at least cannot process it in the same way our brain does. Which image is most interesting, well that is always subjective.
Finally I decided to convert the last image to greyscale.
There is something about b/w images. Colours don't get in the way of seeing the shapes and textures.
