    Hmmm, Mr Harvestman has been sampling the fine rare herbs and fungi he finds upon his forays I fear :eek:

    How have you achieved this photo with filters?

    I used a graduated Neutral density filter to balance the exposure between the sky and foreground as usual but that is pretty much how it looked colours and all.

    The light at sunset and sunrise can be spectacular.

    It can be difficult with digital cameras to capture these type of colours as they see it as a colour cast and try to correct it taking out the colour. You have to take control to achieve this.

    Great capture and Auto def does not cut the mustard with this type of lighting.

    I guess I need to swat up on terminology because I don't understand. I have a canon 40d old DSLR and know a little but don't understand auto def and how to get better colour capture.

    My Olympus DSLR is about the era as your 40d.

    Well it is fairly simple.

    Your camera has White balance settings on it you need to learn how to use it. Look HERE for an explanation.

    Your camera sees this kind of light as a bad colour cast and tries to correct it. You can try and correct it in camera by setting the white balance to sunny or cloudy or even shade. I leave my WB on auto shoot in RAW format and process my photos in Photoshop. I do this rather than let the camera decide what to set things too I make the adjustments the camera normally does myself the way I wanted them when I took the shot.

    Try taking pictures of the same scene with different white balance setting to see what happens.

    This is the same kind of thing during the printing stage of colour print film.
