    So I went on that "scenic route" this morning, with the intention of capturing a blue-sky-sun-only autumn photo of this very tree, but dang! had forgotten that I still had the white balance set to tungsten from my yesterdays photo session of the peanuts (see here: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=306694).
    Only back home, upon loading the photos into the computer, did I find out that they were all this blue! :roll:

    But hey, can I not just say this was taken during a moonlit night??? ;)

    Who needs to know that this was actually taken on a bright Sunday at 11:30 a.m., eh????

    Well. Obviously you can! :D
    Thank you!
    So that is what I had hoped the photo would be like! Heehee.

    Well, tell you what:
    we found the old CD with the copied (shhh) version of PS 3.0 and my son did manage to load the programme back into my computer and it runs. But I ... erm... am only just OVERWHELMED with everything there is. (And since it is a copied version that a friend of my son's gave us years ago, there IS NO HANDBOOK... !) :roll:

    Well, as I was saying: the photo was taken on a "glorious summer's day" (well, October, but during our "Golden October Days"), only had I forgotten to re-adjust the in-camera white balance from "tungsten" to "daylight", hence the blue colouring. Plus I deliberately underexposed this photo ... but in the end it was a "blooper" because it was not supposed to look like a night photo taken in moonlight, since it was not.
    That is also why I am putting the question marks behind the title to this thread.
    And this is why it is in "bloopers". See?
    Mario (toruonu) only tried to show me that you can correct such errors in PS - if you can, that is ;). I can't. Don't understand all this PS at all........
