There's a certain danger in shooting manual mode. You have to pay more attention to what you are doing as well as what you've already done. Ask me how I know this. The above photo is a good example of what I mean. What I was doing was shooting in manual mode in beautiful full bright sunshine and what I had already done was shoot indoors with the white balance set to "incandescent." What I didn't do was set the white balance back to either auto or sunshine. What I got were some very blue pictures of what otherwise would have been an interesting subject, The Gypsy Mermaid. Live and learn - I hope.
