apart from the loss of wildlife there is also the loss of photographic material .. a sad time indeed for that small community ...

That's a fair crop of apples there DF and some wonderful shots of 'em - They sorta remind me of going out with Mum & Dad for the 'Sunday Spin' around Kent, when it was full of orchards, waaay back last century (well, during the early 60's ) - Which bit of the UK were you visiting?

I agree about the loss of habitat for the wildlife, I was reading an article, a few years ago, which mentioned that since the end of WWII, England has lost approx 45,000 miles of hedgerows! That plus the 'prairie-farming' techniques is leaving our countryside as a mono-culture, only useful for food production

Beautifully vibrant pics DF, though I had to put my dark-glasses on for 'em

I know what you mean about the blue/purple effect, when I snapped the Cornflower (below)on my balcony earlier this year, that had lost it's purple tinges too. I suspect it's cos the human eye can see further into the Ultra-Violet range than the camera sensor can.

@ sjb - That's a beautiful but strange plant there, it's a pity the flower was in the shade though, I'd love to see more detail of it.

most likely that there are limitations to the sensors .. I have experienced problems with yellows too especially flowers and road lights .. road lights tend to upset the focusing system .. this was a first though with "blues"

I have problem with purples and reds, especially reds. They will blow out the sensor a lot easier than any other color. If you have a histogram that separates the colors you can see how the red will be clipped while the rest of the colors are in range. This is the problem I have on my D70S Nikon. Not sure if the CMOS sensors still have this problem, I know the CCD sensors have it.

Do you shoot raw? I was skeptical about RAW vs JPG until I researched and did some experiments using Nikon`s ViewNX2. You really DO have more control over your shots when using RAW. Also, try to underexpose by about -.3 stops, that has worked for me as well. The D70S is a fine camera!

I don't have the software to shoot raw. And the red problem is a known issue. I always shoot -.3EV for outdoor shots. The rest of the time I adjust it to whatever is needed.

I was shooting this particular flower and I had to go to -1.3ev to get the flower to be unclipped and by then everything else was pretty dark. I ended up shooting and doing a layered shot. Its a pain, but it works.

You can edit jpegs in Camera Raw if you have that as a plug-in for Photoshop - it gives you some better options than Photoshop for recovering detail, adjusting white balance etc. I'm not sure if you can do so in UFRaw - the plug-in for GIMP which can also be used as a stand alone RAW editor.
