This picture is of a scripted study ! that is all the stops were ( well not all), camera adjustments made for conformity, comparative to what changes that photoshop makes in auto mode! then adjust so that the Olympus E-500 puts out what photoshop likes, a little saturation here, and a little contrast there! but having the affordability to have personal settings feature, gives to it self and me some latitude, I express it as the sweet-spot of the camera, agreed, it is one of my finer moments, a Polarization filter used, Camera Olympus E-500, Albuquerque, New Mexico USA.
