    Great shot Steve, great POV, but i think you may need to change the white balance on it?

  • G’day Dion, thanks mate I’ll try to remember that next time…I keep my settings on, vivid colour and cloudy w/balance, I find it gives a better overall look to the image during daylight…I will try a different setting next night shoot. Thanks for the fav. mate.
